He was back in court on Monday, February 7, to face a charge of violating a sex offender registration order. Johnson was charged with aggravated rape in 2015, according to court records.

Johnson explained to the judge that he is broke and unable to afford an attorney. General Sessions Judge Karen L. Massey appointed a public defender to represent him on the sex offender charge. However, he is still without an attorney for the murder case.

Johnson faces individual charges of first-degree murder, criminal attempted first-degree murder, unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon, employ of a firearm with intent to commit a felony and theft of property $10,000-$60,000, court records show.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of life (60 years) in prison if convicted. Johnson is required to serve a minimum of 85% of his prison sentence if convicted.

In audio of a 911 call to the Pasco County Sheriff, Dash said that her husband and his three minor children conspired to have her arrested.

The 52-year-old actress was charged with domestic battery for scratching and slapping Marty's face during an argument at their Pasco County condominium on Sunday.

Dash said she, Marty and his children - ages 15, 14 and 10 - were all arguing when she pushed his 15-year-old daughter. She accused Marty, who is a lawyer, of putting her in a chokehold.

She said he advised his three children to lie to the police about the incident.

Marty, 44, can be heard in the background yelling, "I can't believe you did this."

When police arrived on the scene, Dash was arrested and booked into the county jail. She has since been released on $500 bond.
