Three men accused in the shooting death of 71-year-old Solomon Reese have been charged with first-degree felony murder, in addition to conspiracy, burglary, and the armed robbery of a senior citizen.
James Brewer, Stephen Page, and Anthony Thomas were indicted on the charges Tuesday. They each pled innocent to the charges.
The thirteen count indictment in the case alleges that Brewer, Page, Thomas, and a fourth person conspired to rob Reese at his Southeast DC apartment. Once they arrived at the apartment, they threatened and fought with Reese and another person who lived at his home. After shooting Reese, they took two leather bags and cigarettes.
A jury trial is scheduled for Sept. 4.
