Judge Issues Protective Orders in Murder Case

A DC Superior Court judge issued protective orders in a murder case and scheduled a status hearing.

Taylor Emanuel, 38, is charged with first-degree murder while armed in connection to a shooting that killed Jimmy Beynum on Jan. 23, 2020.

During the Nov. 29 hearing, Judge Milton Lee set a $100 bond for a handful of misdemeanor cases that Emanual accumulated on top of the murder charge. Attorney Russell Hairston has been appointed to handle the  misdemeanor cases.

The prosecution was granted protective orders for Body Worn Camera footage from Metropolitan Police Department officers who were at the crime scene and for the authorizing of a disclosure of Information.

Judge Lee scheduled a status hearing for Dec. 9 to give new counsel time to review the case and determine how he would like to proceed.
