Saeve Evans still awaiting indictment

Saeve Evans appeared in court for a felony status conference.

Evans allegedly fatally shot Breyona McMillian, 16, in the 1200 Block I Street, SE on Nov. 25, 2016.

Judge Hiram Puig-Lugo asked the prosecutor if she was ready to indict Evans, but she said that they won’t be ready to indict until next month. Prosecutors have nine months from when charges are filed to indict suspects.

Evans’ attorney complained that the eight-month wait has been too long and that they shouldn’t have to wait any longer.

The prosecutor said that they would indict if they could but they aren’t ready.

They are set to reappear in court on Aug. 29 for the indictment.
