Antwan Buchanan trial set for October 2018

Antwan Buchanan pleaded not guilty to the murder charges against him, and the case will now head to trial.

Buchanan is charged with first-degree murder while armed after he allegedly killed Teshean Jermaine Ashe on September 13, 2016.

Judge Milton C. Lee said that the government and defense should have a meeting before the scheduled status hearing of September 29, 2017, this way both parties can remain updated.

A trial start date was scheduled for Oct. 22, 2018.
