Brothers Charged with Murder Ask for Curfew Adjustment

Two brothers charged in connection with a 2020 homicide asked a DC Superior Court judge to modify their curfews.

Co-defendants Dijon Williams, 22, and Daivion Williams, 23, are charged with first-degree murder while armed for their alleged roles in the death of 30-year-old Nurudeen Thomas. Thomas was fatally shot during an alleged robbery on July 21, 2020, on the 4100 block of 14 Street, NW.

The two were living in Georgia when they were arrested, and are still currently there. Following their arrest, the brothers were released into the High Intensity Supervision Program (HISP) with GPS monitoring and a 6:00 p.m. curfew.

During the July 26 status hearing, both defendants asked Judge Danya Dayson to adjust their curfew to meet normal HISP requirements. Judge Dayson said she will rule on the request during the next hearing, pending information from Georgia’s pretrial services. 

DC’s Pretrial Services Agency (PSA) said they would try to have a representative from Georgia’s pretrial services at the next hearing, which is scheduled for Nov. 2.
