A DC Superior Court judge continued a status hearing for a homicide case awaiting indictment. 

Terrell Poe, 34, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for his alleged role in the shooting of 33-year-old Christopher Washington on Sept. 23, 2020, on the 400 block of Southern Avenue, SE.

During the May 25 hearing, defense attorney Madalyn Harvey asked the prosecution to give an estimate of when the case would be indicted. 

The prosecutor said a grand jury is currently looking at the case and the results should come soon. 

Harvey also said she still needs to receive discovery evidence from the prosecution. 

“I’ve raised this at every hearing, and I don’t have any discovery other than what I saw at the preliminary hearing,” she said. 

Judge Yvonne Williams set the next hearing for Sept. 7.
