The man charged with the murder of Darryn Conte is scheduled to have his case go to trial over two years after he was first arrested.
Mark Beasley has been held since last May on charges he shot and killed Conte. His case was originally set to go to trial last summer, but was pushed after delays in DNA testing. When the case was discussed last June, prosecutors said they expect the trial to last two weeks.
Conte was killed April 26, 2015 in the 400 block of Butternut St., NW. A trial readiness hearing has been scheduled for May 12, with a trial start date of June 26.
