Ramona M. Gray, charged with the stabbing death of Shemese Grant, is expected in court tomorrow, Sept. 17, at 9:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.

DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the victim to an area hospital where she was subsequently pronounced dead.”
Grant was buried Sept. 10 at the Fort Lincoln Cemetary.

Gray is being held without bail and is represented by defense attorney Premal Dharia, according to D.C. Superior Court. Gray is charged with first-degree murder and assault with intent to kill.
