Homicide Defendant Arraigned

Defendant arraigned on homicide charges during an Aug. 12 hearing. 

Tierra Posey, 24, was charged with second-degree murder while armed, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, and carrying a pistol without a license in connection with the fatal shooting of 21-year-old Tia Carey on Jan 6, 2020, on the 3700 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE.

The attorneys asked for more time to continue plea negotiations.

According to Posey’s defense attorney, Kevann Gardner, a counteroffer was given to the prosecution yesterday. 

DC Superior Court Judge Marisa Demeo scheduled Posey’s next court appearance for Sept. 16 to review the status of negotiations.
