Judge Sets Trial Date for Homicide Defendant

A DC Superior Court judge scheduled a homicide defendant to go before a jury.

Kaevon Sutton, 18, is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the shooting of 22-year-old Aujee Tyler on the 3500 block of Stanton Rd., SE on March 19, 2018.

During the March 10 hearing, defense attorney, Joseph Wong, requested that the judge set the earliest possible trial date for his client.

His client is currently being held at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS).

Judge Danya Dayson scheduled the trial for Nov. 28 through Dec. 22, 2022. She also scheduled a trial readiness hearing for Aug 17.
