DC Superior Court Judge Milton Lee granted a continuance on Nov. 4 for the defense to decide if they wished to independently test DNA evidence in the case.
Darius Robertson, 29, and Antonio Hensley, 30, is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of 33-year-old Andre Robertson on the 5300 block of Clay Terrace NE on Oct. 2, 2021. The assault occurred on Oct. 1, 2021. Darius is the victim’s cousin.
During the Friday hearing, the prosecutor said he does not intend to do any additional testing.
The prosecutor said he found a variety of clothing and three vehicles at the scene. Two vehicles belonged to Hensley and one to Robertson.
He also said he turned in all evidence to the defense, including body worn cameras, surveillance videos, police paperwork, and reports on various subjects.
Robertson’s defense attorney, Michael Madden, said he sent an email to the prosecutor stating that the vehicles are inaccurate compared to the defendant’s vehicle.
Judge Lee said he believes both parties need to decide whether they would like to conduct any testing.
Judge Lee scheduled the next hearing on March 10, 2023. Both defendants are being held without bail.Follow this case
