Delonte Javon Wynn, 34, charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly planning the murder of Darlene Marie Bryant, 46, pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.
Wynn allegedly shot and killed Bryant in the 4300 block of Wheeler Road, SE, on May 13, 2015. He was arrested on June 30 and initially charged with second-degree murder while armed. The charge was then upgraded to first-degree murder while armed.
In court, U.S. Government attorney Chris Bruckmann said the government was done with DNA testing and had submitted reports to the defense and D.C. courts.
Wynn’s defense attorneys, Murad Hussain and Mary Kennedy, requested discovery from D.C. courts, as well as a scheduled trial date for their client.
A jury trial is scheduled for Dec. 5.
