Sean Paul Hurd, the man who allegedly killed Antonio Lee Bryant awaits trial, as his case moved forward in a hearing on Tuesday.
Hurd is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly killing Antonio Lee Bryant on June 17, 2015. Bryant was found with gunshot wounds in the 3300 block of D Street, SE.
According to a report from The Washington Post, Hurd was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet during the time and was being monitored by the authorities as part of his release from a previous attempted robbery conviction. With the bracelet, police were able to place Hurd at the scene during the shooting.
In a hearing on Tuesday, both the defense and prosecution declared that there will be no further DNA testing. The defense also raised a motion to suppress the prosecution from using a GPS tracking file and has taken the case to the court of appeals. Judge Puig-Lugo insisted in court that he had no authority over that matter.
Hurd is set for a status hearing in December, and is currently set for trial on Jan. 22, 2018.
