Defense Attorney Asks for Extra Time to File Notice

A defense attorney requested extended time to file a notice of defense, Jan. 8.

Hilman Jordan, also known as Bobby Jordan, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting 64-year-old Jawaid Bhutto on the 2600 block of Wade Road, SE on March 1. A nearby security camera recorded the murder, according to court documents. 

Jordan’s defense attorney, Dana Page, who was given the case by Jordan’s former attorney, Anthony Matthews, asked DC Superior Court Judge Danya Dayson for more time to file a notice of what the defense’s theory will be during trial.

Page also asked for any information the prosecution may have that could exonerate Jordan in regards to his mental health issues.

The prosecution did not object to any of her requests.

Judge Dayson agreed to give Page more time, saying she must file the notice by April 6.

The status hearing is scheduled to continue on April 9.
