A DC Superior Court judge scheduled a trial for a murder case in which the victim has yet to be found.
Isaac Moye is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Unique Harris. According to court documents, Harris’ children reported her missing one morning when they realized she was not in her home on the 2400 block of Hartford Street, SE, but her car was still in the driveway. Moye, 44, was on GPS tracking at the time due to another case. Tracking records indicate that he arrived at Harris’ home around 10:40 p.m. on Oct. 9, 2010, and left around 7:20 a.m. the following day.
Harris has yet to be found. In 2018, the court granted a petition for a presumption of death of a missing person and issued a death certificate for her. Moye was arrested in December 2020.
Judge Neal Kravitz asked if the parties could pick an earlier date due to defense attorney Jason Tulley asserting Moyes right to a speedy trial during the Dec. 1 hearing. Both parties were unable to find time in their schedules until conflicts and the start date was set for May 22, 2023.
Judge Kravitz also acknowledged defense attorney Jason Tulley’s motion for release following the recent U.S. Marshal Service’s report on the jail conditions but said he will address the issue at another date when he is able to further review the motion.
The prosecution expects to have DNA results by Feb. 16. A status hearing to discuss these results is set for March 9.
