Still Waiting Medical Records, Defense Says

During a status hearing on Oct. 28, a defense attorney said she was still waiting for a victim’s medical records.

 Brian Wooden, 29, is charged with first-degree murder while armed and first-degree cruelty to children for allegedly killing his girlfriend’s son, 1-year-old Carter Sanders, on the 4700 block of Benning Rd., SE on May 16, 2018.

D.C. Witness previously reported that Wooden’s defense attorney, Marnitta King, requested that the prosecution turn over all of the medical records from the infant because she suspected there were prior injuries that Carter may have gone to the doctor for.

The prosecution said she still has not contacted Carter’s mother to get the records.

DC Superior Court Judge Milton C. Lee continued the case while parties wait for the child’s medical records. 

Wooden is currently released under the High Intensity Supervision Program.

HE is scheduled for a status hearing on Jan. 23, 2020.
