Judge Delays 2015 Murder Trial to Review Medical Records

A DC Superior Court judge delayed a murder trial for a second time so experts could review the defendant’s medical records. The trial was moved from June 1 to June 4.

The defense claimed May 31 that Antonio Brown allegedly shot Charles Welch, 25, in 2015 because he was taking medications that caused him to have hallucinations. The prosecution said it would like to bring in an expert to review Brown’s medical records to refute the claim.

Brown, 29,is charged with first-degree murder while armed. Apparently, the shooting, which occurred on the 1800 block of Harvard Street, NW, resulted from a dispute Brown’s girlfriend, Amanda Turner, had with Welch.
