Woman Arraigned on Murder, Firearm Charges

A woman was arraigned on charges of first-degree murder while armed and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence for her alleged role in a 2020 shooting at an apartment in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood. 

On the evening of Nov. 14, 2020, Metropolitan Police Department officers found 44-year-old Terry Hickman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the apartment, which is located on the 1000 Block of 4th Street, SW. Nijinsky Dix was apprehended at the crime scene, allegedly holding a gun, according to court documents. Police believe the homicide was domestic in nature.

The 38-year-old defendant was indicted on March 16 and arraigned during an April 6 hearing. Defense attorney Brandi Harden entered a plea of not guilty on her client’s behalf. 

Harden told DC Superior Court Judge Marisa Demeo that the prosecution is looking over a potential plea deal from the defense. 

Parties are scheduled to reconvene on April 22.
