Judge Continues Murder Hearing for Testing Results

A DC Superior Court judge continued a felony status conference for a murder defendant.

Jaamil Hipps, 43, is charged with second-degree murder while armed in the stabbing of 40-year-old Sa’id Grey on the 1300 block of Missouri Avenue, NW on Aug. 12, 2020.

According to court documents, Grey was found in the hallway of an apartment complex suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene. 

During the March 25 hearing, Judge Danya Dayson asked if parties are engaging in plea negotiations. 

The prosecution said they had reached out to the previous defense attorney assigned to the case.

However, new forensic testing is ongoing and the prosecution is waiting for those reports before they contact the newly appointed defense attorney, David Knight, to engage in plea negotiations.

The next felony status conference is scheduled for May 24.
