Judge Continues Murder Hearing, Allowing More Time to Review Competency Report

A DC Superior Court judge continued a Feb. 25 hearing, so parties and the judge would have more time to review a competency report submitted by the DC Department of Behavioral Health. 

Carson Posey, 21, is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the shooting of 28 -ear-old Shantal Hill on April 15, 2020, on the 1200 block of North Capitol Street, NW.

The report was not submitted until the day of the hearing, which did not allow enough time for counsel, the defendant and the judge to review it.

Judge Danya Dayson continued the hearing for March 25.
