A woman charged with murder was ordered held without bail, despite attempts by her attorney to argue she acted in self defense.
Kimberly Shaw was charged with second-degree murder while armed for allegedly killing 23-year-old Leonte Cox in the 1600 block of R St., SE..
Shaw’s attorney argued she was assaulted several times by Cox including on the night of the incident. Despite this, she was still ordered held due to prior convictions.
After hearing that Shaw would be held, the defense put in a request that any information involving domestic violence be released by the government.
Shaw’s next court date is July 10 at 9 a.m.
