Murder Case Set for Preliminary Hearing

On Feb. 3, a DC Superior Court judge scheduled a hearing to determine if a homicide case has enough evidence to go to trial.

Dennis Chase, 28, is charged with second-degree murder while armed in the fatal shooting of 30-year-old Anthony Orr.

On the morning of Dec. 7, 2020, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers  found Orr in the middle of the street on the 400 block of Xenia Street, SE with a gunshot wound to the head, according to court documents. He was pronounced dead at an area hospital.


Judge John Campbell scheduled the hearing for March 24.
