Judge Schedules Hearing for Co-Defendants in Murder Case

A DC Superior Court judge continued an Oct. 22 hearing for a murder case after the prosecution said they still have evidence they need to provide to the defense.

Co-defendants Stephon Evans and Kewon Hunter are charged with first-degree murder while armed in connection with the shooting of 21-year-old Dion DeMarco Boyd on July 30, 2018, on the 1400 block of Maryland Avenue, NE.

Both are also charged with conspiracy while armed, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, and carrying a pistol without a license outside a home or business.

Judge Marisa Demeo scheduled the next hearing for Dec. 12.
