Trials for more than two dozen murder cases are already scheduled on the 2012 judicial calendar. Dates as far out as Nov. 19 have been penciled into judge’s schedules.
Of murders that have occurred since Oct. 2010, 25 cases are currently scheduled for 2012 trials.
Also scheduled is the trial for five men charged in the so-called “South Capitol Street murder,” a violent drive-by attack that killed Jordan Howe, 20, Brishell Jones, 16, Davaughn Boyd, 18 and William Jones, 19, and Tavon Nelson, 17, and wounded nine others.
Sanquan Carter, 20, his brother, Orlando Carter, 21, Jeffrey D. Best, 22, Robert Bost, 22, and Lamar J. Williams, 22, are scheduled to go to trial Jan. 30. Judge Ronna Beck will hear the case. All could be sentenced to life without parole if convicted.
