After a change in jurisdictions, Traveous Lamont Brown, 27, was presented in court Wednesday, facing charges for his alleged role in the shooting death of a 21-year-old man.
Brown was previously being held in Virginia.
Police say Brown, co-defendant Paul Swann and another unnamed person are responsible for murdering Barker “purposefully and with deliberate premeditated malice” in March 2016.
Brown stood before the court in a FairFax county green jumpsuit as the court clerk read aloud the four counts he and Swann, 24, are charged with.
According to court documents, Brown and Swann are charged with one count of premeditated first-degree murder, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence or dangerous offence, unlawful possession of a firearm with a prior conviction and unlawful possession of ammunition.
In turn, Brown and Swann pleaded not guilty on all counts. The duo are scheduled to go to trial Feb. 28, 2018. By which time, the prosecution said Brown’s ongoing cases in Virginia should be sentenced.
Brown and Swann are expected in court July 14 for a status hearing.
