Danielle Marshall was found dead inside her Power Springs home in 2013.

New cable TV show to highlight Cobb mother’s murder

A new cable television show airing Tuesday will take a look at the case of a Cobb County mother who was murdered inside her home.

The series premier of “Truth About Murder with Sunny Hostin” will air at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22 on the Investigation Discovery channel, the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office said on its Facebook page

Danielle Marshall’s body was found in her Powder Springs kitchen in January 2013. Her daughter, who was nine months old at the time, was found crawling around the home at the time of the grim discovery. 

Marshall, 23, had been pistol-whipped and shot in the head, Cobb prosecutors previously said. After a year of trying to solve Marshall’s murder, the case turned cold. However, a breakthrough came when investigators examined phone records pointing to Joshua Maurice Gibson, the father of Marshall’s baby. He was arrested in 2015.

Gibson was convicted in 2018 on the charges of malice murder, two counts of aggravated assault, cruelty to children in the third degree and making false statements. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Cobb County Chief Deputy Assistant District Attorney Jesse Evans, who prosecuted Gibson, was interviewed for the show. It’s the second time this year the case has been featured on a cable TV network. TV One’s “Fatal Attraction” aired an episode in April highlighting the murder and the departments’ work to bring Gibson to justice.
