Perez Green hearing date rescheduled

The man allegedly responsible for the death of 49-year-old James Harling appeared briefly in court Thursday to set a future court date.

Perez Green, 37, currently faces second-degree murder while armed charged for his alleged role in Harling’s death.

Around 8 a.m. on October 26, 2016 police found Harling unconscious and suffering from head trauma on 300 block of Pennsylvania Ave., SE.

Later that day, police arrested and charged Green. Green had been held without bail, but in November he was released into the high intensity supervision program.

Green is expected again in court on March 3.
