A 60-year-old homicide defendant was found guilty of first and second-degree murder on Sept. 19.

A jury convicted him of first-degree murder while armed against a senior citizen with a sharp object and second-degree murder while armed with a sharp object.

On Sept. 16, jurors sent a note to DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt, in which they requested to examine the black shirt and the Redskins jacket that Brown is allegedly seen wearing in the footage. The items were tested for DNA.

Edward Brown was indicted on first-degree murder while armed of a senior citizen in January for stabbing and killing 77-year-old, Michael Mahoney on Feb. 5, 2018, on the 2300 block of 11th Street, NW.

According to court documents, Brown was spotted coming from the direction of Mahoney’s apartment on Feb. 4, 2018 at 1:16 a.m. In the footage, he appeared to be wearing a black long-sleeve shirt, a yellow and blue stocking cap, blue jeans, black shoes, and a Redskins jacket.

Jurors began deliberating on the case at 9:30 a.m on Sept. 16. The verdict was reached on Sept. 19.

Brown is currently being held at the DC Jail without bond.

A sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 9.
