Prosecution to Work Towards Indicting Murder Defendant

A DC Superior Court judge continued a murder case at the prosecution’s request so they can have more time to work towards an indictment.

Judge Maribeth Raffinan granted the request made by the prosecutor in the case against Tywan Morris. Morris, 26, is charged with second-degree murder while armed in the fatal stabbing of 27-year-old Danielle Stuckey on Oct. 17, 2021, on the 2800 block of Alabama Avenue, SE. The defendant was arrested that same day and held in jail until a judge agreed to release him into the High Intensity Supervision Program in November.

Morris has been in compliance with his release conditions. He is scheduled to return to court on June 6.
