Judge Continues Status Hearing for Murder Defendant

A DC Superior Court judge scheduled a status hearing for a murder case.

Tondrick Murphy, 31, is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the death of 26-year-old Marquis Jones. On Oct. 6, 2018, Jones was found on the 2900 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on scene.

The case is currently set to go to trial in April.

Judge Milton Lee continued the Nov. 4 status hearing so the attorneys could have more time to discuss the trial status and address motions.

Parties are scheduled to reconvene on Nov. 18.
