Judge Gives Prosecution Time for Indictment, Continues Hearing

DC Superior Court Judge Robert Okun continued a felony status conference. 

Christian Monge, 25, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly stabbing 31-year-old Brittanie Clark

The case was continued to give time for the prosecution to secure an indictment. There is also a pending plea offer.

Monge was unable to attend the hearing on July 22 because he is currently quarantined at DC Jail. He is going to be quarantined until July 24. 

On Aug 31, 2021, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers responded to a report of a stabbing at 5000 block of First Street, Northwest. Upon their arrival, Clark was found unconscious and unresponsive. Clark suffered puncture wounds to the torso. Despite all lifesaving efforts, she was pronounced dead shortly after. 

Monge’s next court appearance is scheduled to occur on Sept. 8.
