New Plea Offer Extended to Murder Defendant

A DC Superior Court Judge scheduled a status hearing for a murder defendant. 

Paul Daniel, 41, is charged with first-degree murder while armed, possessing a firearm during a crime of violence and unlawful possession of a firearm in the shooting of 59-year-old Kevin Harrison on Jan. 16, 2019, on the 4000 block of Hayes Street, NE. He was arraigned in September.

The prosecution has placed a new plea offer on the record. Defense attorney Madalyn Harvey said she needs more time to consult with her client before a decision can be made.

Judge Marisa Demeo scheduled Daniel to return to court on Oct. 16. He is expected to accept or decline the plea at that time.
