DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt granted on Dec. 9 a continuance for sentencing.

Edward Brown,60, is charged with first-degree murder while armed of a senior citizen in January for stabbing and killing 77-year-old, Michael Mahoney on Feb 5, 2018, on the 2300 block of 11th Street, NW. 

During Friday’s hearing, a motion was filed by the defense attorney Michele Stevens to withdraw from the case before the sentence is announced due to an arisen conflict with Brown.

Brown wanted to touch base on the subject by saying “three and a half weeks ago” but was quickly stopped by Judge Brandt due to any discussions with Stevens as being confidential and not suitable to reveal in court.

Judge Brandt said she does have a pre-sentencing report and granted the motion to withdraw Stevens from the case.

Brown is scheduled for sentencing on Jan.20
