Parties in Murder Case Prepare for Trial

A DC Superior Court judge set deadlines for motions in a murder case set to go to trial in October 2022.

Larry Brown, 34, is charged with second-degree murder while armed, possession of a prohibited weapon, and carrying a dangerous weapon in the death of 33-year-old Derrick Wright, who was stabbed multiple times on March 24, 2018, on the 1300 block of Florida Avenue, NE. 

During the Sept. 22 trial readiness hearing, Judge Neal Kravitz ordered parties to file any additional motions by Oct. 28. The defense has until this date to respond to motions previously filed by the prosecution. Motions filed by Oct. 28 must also be responded to within 30 days.

Brown has previously rejected a plea deal, the prosecution said. 

Parties are scheduled to reconvene for another trial readiness hearing on Oct. 15.
