Hearing Scheduled for Murder Defendants

On Aug. 11, a DC Superior Court Judge Juliet McKenna scheduled a hearing for Sept. 1 to determine if a murder case has enough evidence to go to trial.

Dajuan Jones, 19, and Michael Mason, 16, are charged with first-degree murder while armed in the death of Brea Moon. Moon, 21, was shot on April 7 on the 3900 block of Alabama Avenue, SE.

According to court documents, Prince George’s County Police Department responded to a report on a shooting on Suitland Road in Maryland. They found Moon, a 21-year-old resident of District Heights, Md., suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.


According to a D.C. Witness report, Mason is also being charged with another murder in connection with the death of Antwaun Roach, an 18-year-old resident of Southwest, DC who was killed on May 22.

He is also charged with assault with intent to kill while armed and assault with intent to commit any other offense while armed.
