Judge Gives Defense More Time in Homicide Case

A DC Superior Court judge agreed to continue a hearing in a homicide case, so the defense attorney could have more time to speak with his client.

Eliyas Aregahedne, 24, is charged with second-degree murder while armed for allegedly stabbing 27-year-old Margery Magill on the 400 block of Irving Street, NW, on Aug. 27, 2019.

Defense attorney David Knight said he needs more time to review the evidence and speak to his client about how this case should proceed. He said this case may be on track to go to trial, but it’s not definite. 

The prosecution has not offered a plea deal.

Judge Marisa Demeo scheduled the next hearing for July 8.
