The defense counsel for three murder defendants are seeking to have their clients released from custody.
Co-defendants Nelfy Hernandez, 18, Deandre Levy, 20, and Trey Prillerman, 17, are charged with first-degree murder while armed in the shooting of 17-year-old Taijhon Wyatt, Jr. on the 5500 block of 9th Street, NW, on Aug. 10, 2020.
One of Prillerman’s attorneys, Elizabeth Weller, filed a bond review motion on Sept. 29. In it, she points out that her client has no prior convictions, has been doing well in school and has a supportive family.
Parties are scheduled to reconvene for a bond review hearing on Oct. 21.
