The man charged with the murder of Marcus Manor pleaded not guilty to three charges surrounding the case in D.C. Superior Court on Tuesday.
Demetrius Brandon and Kevin Chase were indicted by a grand jury on May 3. Chase was previously arrested in the case and has been held without bond. Brandon was arrested Monday and indicted on first-degree murder while armed, accessory after the fact and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence.
Chase also pleaded not guilty, and was due for a jury trial to start next month. In lieu of the new charges and additional defendant, the date has been suspended.
Both Chase and Brandon are due to appear in court on May 12.
