Mother Pleads For Son To Turn Himself In After Allegedly Shooting Her Girlfriend & Her 11-Year-Old Daughter Dead — Video

The distraught mother of a 26-year-old suspected killer begged her son to turn himself in to authorities. Marlin Larice Joseph is accused of killing his mother's girlfriend, as well as her 11-year-old daughter.

Robin Denson sobbed as she spoke during a press conference, where she pleaded with her son to do the right thing.

Joseph shot 36-year-old Kaladaa Crowell and her 11-year-old daughter Kyra Inglett dead over a 'domestic incident.'

Police said Joseph shot Crowell once before he ran out the door as he shot at 11-year-old Kyra. Crowell managed to tell Joseph's brother, Patrick Joseph, to call 911.

Witnesses stated Kyra appeared to suffer gunshot wounds to her head and arm. Joseph's brothers reportedly tried to stop him, but he went back into the home and fired two more shots at Crowell.

Police found Crowell dead at the scene. Her daughter died two hours later at the hospital.

Joseph's mother was in a relationship with Crowell and considered Kyra her stepdaughter.

Police say Joseph fled the scene in a 2012 gray Toyota Camry that belonged to Crowell

A police report stated Joseph had been arguing with Crowell earlier in the day about Kyra's "bad attitude" and said the girl was not getting along with other children that were living at their home.

Joseph's mother pleaded with her son in a press conference, stating, "Marlin, son, I love you... You know I love you, but please, turn yourself in. If you're scared to do so, call me."

"I just want him to turn himself in. I know the family wants justice. I want justice, too. I love my son, but I loved Kyra and Kaladaa, too," Denson stated.

Joseph was last seen withdrawing cash early Friday at a bank in West Palm Beach.

His mother stated she had not heard from her son and hoped he will do the right thing.

Joseph has a history of domestic violence, spending time in jail previously for 'lewd behavior' toward a 13-year-old girl in a 2013 incident.

Denson broke down into tears as she talked about her girlfriend and stepdaughter, stating Kyra was the 'sweetest' girl who would 'give the shirt off her back to help anybody.'

Police offered a $5,000 reward for anyone with information leading to Joseph's arrest.

He is a 5'10" black male, weighing 180 pounds with face tattoos. He fled in the vehicle with license plate BAOMJ.

An updated report reveals that Marlin was arrested on Tuesday by U.S. marshals in Lake Worth after he was on the run for days.

He was denied bond at a court appearance Wednesday morning.
