Judge Schedules Preliminary Hearing for Murder Case

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

Co-defendants Delonta Stevenson, 26, and Vorreze Thomas, 23, are both charged with first-degree murder while armed in the death of 32-year-old Terrence Allen on Jan. 18 on the 3000 block of Stanton Road, SE. 

D.C Witness previously reported that Stevenson and Thomas allegedly cut Allen off in a vehicle before shooting close to 50 rounds at Allen’s car.

According to a police report, Stevenson is suspected to have been in the passenger seat and is believed to be the individual who shot at Allen and two other victims who sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Judge Robert Okun scheduled the preliminary hearing for April 26.
