Defense in Murder Case Given Time to Consider Plea Offer

A DC Superior Court judge continued a murder case to give the defense time to consider a plea offer.

During the Aug. 31 hearing, Terrance Prue was arraigned on charges of first-degree murder while armed, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a pistol without a license outside a home or business. The 21-year-old defendant is accused of shooting 39-year-old Bruce Gilmore on June 5, 2019, on the 3500 block of 22nd Street, SE.

Newly appointed defense attorney Andrew Ain said the prosecution has extended a plea offer and agreed to extend its expiration date so Ain could have more time to discuss it with his client. 

Judge Neal Kravitz scheduled the next hearing for Sept. 14.
