Murder Case Continues Amidst Discussion Over Motion to Supress Evidence

D.C. Superior Court Judge Milton C. Lee set the date for another hearing to discuss a motion to suppress evidence and denied the defense’s request to modify the defendant’s release conditions. 

Gregory Green is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the death of Derrick Williams who, according to court documents, was robbed and shot in front of his Southeast, DC, home on March 29, 2014. 

Defense attorney Pierce Suen requested a status hearing at a later date to give the prosecution and defense time to address the motion to suppress evidence on the defendant’s cell phone. Judge Lee complied with the request. 

Before the hearing concluded, defense asked Judge Lee to modify the defendant’s release conditions, citing his eight months of perfect compliance with the high intensity supervision program (HISP) conditions, ability to find a new job, and dedication to his family who was present in the courtroom. 

In response to the defense’s request to lift Green’s electronic monitoring, Judge Lee immediately denied it and stated that he will not take the defendant off HISP. 

Green was first charged with murder in April 2014. His first trial ended with a hung jury. The second time around, a jury convicted him of first-degree murder while armed and armed robbery. He was sentenced to 35 years for murder and seven-and-a-half years for robbery. But in 2020, his convictions were overturned, and he was granted a new trial.

The next hearing is set for Dec. 16.
