Brothers To Appear in Remote Hearing for Murder Case

On Nov. 3, DC Superior Court Judge Danya Dayson ruled that two brothers involved in a murder case will appear remotely on Nov. 4.

Dijon and Daivion Williams are alleged to have been involved in the fatal shooting of 30-year-old Nurudeen Thomas. They are accused of killing Thomas in the process of an attempted robbery on July 21 on the 1400 block of Taylor Street, NW.

Both parties will appear remotely for a  hearing to address bench warrants, stay away orders and scheduling matters in the murder case. 

During the Nov. 3 hearing, Dijon’s defense attorney, David Knight and Daivion’s attorney, Kirstin McGough, requested that the bench warrants against their clients be quashed. 

Dijon, 21, was charged with first-degree murder while armed on Oct. 27. On Nov. 3 a charge of felony murder while armed was filed against his 22-year-old brother Daivion. A case number has not been assigned to the older brother as of Nov. 3.

The two are currently being held in Georgia and have stay away orders from one another. The Fugitive Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) squad and U.S. Marshals notified parties that it is not possible to book the brothers remotely.
