    [PHI] Mother of Home Invasion Victim Speaks Out
    The mother of a man who was killed in a home invasion that left his wife badly injured, speaks after the arrest of one of the suspects in her son's murder. Ali Marsh is under arrest and his alleged accomplice Charles Davis is still on the loose. They are accused of shooting Sherrell Paul and killing her husband John Paul Jr. NBC10's Cydney Long reports.

    Investigators say Davis and a second man, Ali Marsh, 35, broke into a house and shot Sherrell Paul at least eight times. Sherrell's husband John Paul Jr. confronted the two men, and was shot dead, according to police.

    Paul's two children were home during the attack.

    During the alleged home invasion Sherrell shot back at her attackers and possibly struck one of them in the leg.

    Marsh was arrested without incident on March 10 at the Spring Hill Marriott hotel in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. by a task force of U.S. Marshals, Philadelphia Police and local police. He was found with a gunshot wound to his leg when he was captured but it was unclear who shot him, U.S. Marshals said. He was charged with murder, robbery and related offenses.

    While Marsh was captured, Davis eluded authorities for months until his arrest on Thursday. Police have not yet revealed the specific charges against him.

    John's mother, Antoinette Paul, believes her son's murder was the result of a mistaken address or identity.
