During a Jan. 20 sentencing, DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt denied the defenses request to postpone a homicide defendant’s sentencing to file for a retrial.

Edward Brown, 60, is charged with first-degree murder while armed of a senior citizen in January for stabbing and killing 77-year-old, Michael Mahoney on Feb 5, 2018, on the 2300 block of 11th Street, NW. 

The sentencing was postponed until March 24 due to defense attorney, Megan Allburn being appointed at the last hearing.
