A DC Superior Court judge ruled that a murder case has enough evidence to go to trial. 

Keith Hudson, 25, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for his alleged role in the death of Isaiah Glover. On Feb. 6, Glover, 30, was found on the 4100 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE with a gunshot wound to the head.

Judge Milton Lee found probable cause based on a Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) detective’s testimony. 

During the April 19 hearing, the prosecution asked the detective about security footage of the area around the crime. The detective said the grey jeans, silver shoes, keychain and black adidas sweatshirt seen on the suspect in surveillance footage is a match with recent pictures of Hudson. 

The prosecution asked that Hudson be held because he was a “flight risk” and had a history of being violent.

Defense attorney Michael Madden disagreed with the prosecution’s characterization of his client, saying the pandemic has made it dangerous for Hudson to stay in jail. 

“Mr. Hudson is asking the court to release him on high intensity supervision,” Madden said.  

But, Judge Lee declined the request. He said Hudson will continue to be held at DC Jail.

A status hearing is scheduled for July 28.
