Judge Schedules Preliminary Hearing for Defendant in Stabbing Case


A DC Superior Court judge scheduled a hearing to determine if a murder case has enough evidence to go to trial. 

Joshua Young, 21,  is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly stabbing 50 year-old Walter Rogers to death on Feb. 21 on the 3900 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE. 

Judge Milton Lee scheduled the preliminary hearing for June 1. 

In the meantime, Young will remain held at DC Jail, where he has been since he picked up the charges earlier this month.
