DC Superior Court Judge Marisa Demeo granted a continuance for counsel presiding over a homicide as they work to obtain evidence.

Marcel Jackson, 35, is charged with first-degree murder in connection to the stabbing of 22-year-old, Antonio Jones, also known as “G-Baby,” on May 8, on the 2800 block of Hartford Street, SE.

During the Sept. 30 hearing, the prosecution said DNA evidence was submitted to the lab and results are expected in December. 

Jackson allegedly stabbed James 27 times and did not sustain any defensive wounds, according to court documents. 

Court documents also allege that the incident ensued after James asked Jackson for a cigarette. Jackson allegedly proceeded to follow James up the street when he left the scene.

An unknown individual reportedly ran down the street, yelling “that dude just stabbed up G-Baby.” 

Jackson’s defense attorney, Dana Page, requested additional time to pursue the case.

Judge Demeo granted a continuance to parties, providing them with more time to settle matters.

The next hearing is scheduled on Oct. 27.
