FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WUSA9) -- The Prince George's County man who police say confessed to shooting his two-year-old daughter and her mother over an issue with child support payments has been denied bond.

Six relatives of Daron Johnson spoke in court during his bond hearing Thursday, asking the judge to be lenient while holding back tears.

"We will have to empower families to make different choices. This is a case we see too often where a very permanent decision is made on temporary emotions," Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said. 

Johnson's younger brother told WUSA9 he's shocked his brother allegedly confessed to killing Neshante Davis and her daughter Chole Davis-Green.

"I love her and I'm gonna miss her. I will always love her," Walker said. 

Funeral arrangements for Davis and Davis-Green are scheduled for February 13 at the Ark of Safety Church in Upper Marlboro, Md. A prayer vigil is also scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Friday at Bradbury Elementary School, where Davis was a teacher.

So far in 2016, 40 percent of homicide cases in Prince George's County have stemmed from domestic incidents.  

"We are absolutely going to hold Johnson accountable. We are going to work this case every minute that we have available to make sure justice is done, but even after we enforce the law we have to educate the public," Alsobrooks said. "We can't continue to stand at the microphone and talk about babies who have been executed."
