Judge Holds Murder Defendant During Presentments

A DC Superior Court judge held one murder defendant during presentments on Sept. 23.

A total of 31 defendants were brought before Judge Lloyd Nolan.

Eric Davis, 58, was charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting 41-year-old Theadore Dewayne Riley, Jr. on the 1600 block of Gales Street, NE, on July 19. 

Judge Nolan held him due to his criminal past and the severity of the charge. The prosecution said he was previously convicted of murder in 1996 and completed incarceration in 2019.

Davis is scheduled to return to court for a felony status conference on Oct. 6. 

A domestic violence defendant who was charged with simple assault returned to court on a bench warrant. He was released and scheduled to return to court on Oct. 20.
