Man arrested in home invasion robbery, fatal shooting

US Marshals arrested Charles Davis Thursday in connection with a home invasion robbery and fatal shooting in Strawberry Mansion on March 5.

At about 3:45 a.m., Davis and Ali Marsh, 36, who was arrested March 11 according to court documents, broke into a house on Cecil B. Moore Avenue near 33rd Street and fatally shot a John Paul Jr., 35, and critically wounded his wife, Rhine. The couple's six and 13-year-old children were also at home at the time, but were not injured, police said.

Working from an anonymous tip, marshals found Davis hiding out at a friend’s house on Conestoga Avenue near Poplar in West Philadelphia about 5:30 p.m.

Officials said Davis, who was arrested without incident, was waiting to be arraigned Thursday night.
