Charging documents describe victim, suspect “talking and laughing” together before fatal stabbing

The morning Marcellus Bailey was killed, a witness says, Bailey and Davon Holmes were “talking and laughing” together.

Then suddenly Holmes swung out, hitting Bailey in the neck. Says another witness, it became apparent that Bailey had been stabbed when he started bleeding profusely.

That’s according to charging documents presented to Holmes in court Saturday, when he was presented with a charge of second-degree murder in connection with Bailey’s death.

MPD officers responding to a call for an aggravated assault on Aug. 3 found Bailey with an apparent slash or stab wound to his neck. He was taken to Washington Hospital Center where he died that same day.

A preliminary hearing has been set for the case for Sept. 21.

Charging documents are below.
