Defense Counsel Plans on Asking Prosecution for More Evidence

A defense counselor said, during a status hearing Nov. 26, that he plans on asking for more evidence.

Saeve Evans

Saeve Evans is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting Kareem Ware on the 3800 block of Halley Terrace in 2009. Evans, 33, was also acquitted of the murder of 16-year-old Breyona McMillian in February. McMillian was killed in 2016.

Evans defense attorney, James King, asked DC Superior Court Judge Danya Dayson for another status hearing, so he could get more evidence from the prosecution.

The prosecutor told King that there was already a status hearing set on Feb. 21, 2020.

Judge Dayson suggested that the current date remain, and if King felt that another hearing was needed, he could contact chambers.
