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.
