Judge Schedules Further Hearing for Murder Defendant

On July 29, a DC Superior Court judge scheduled a hearing for Aug. 24 to determine if a murder case has enough evidence to go to trial.

Daniel Fleetwood is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the death of 26-year-old Shana Donahue, who was stabbed to death on May 28 inside a residence on the 2900 block of N Street, SE. The murder is a domestic violence case.

Matthew Davies, Fleetwood’s defense attorney, asked Judge Dayna Dayson to schedule the preliminary hearing to take place in three to four weeks.
