Suspect in Isiah Agyekum killing scheduled for competency hearing

Judge Puig-Lugo questioned Marquete Murray’s competence, and scheduled a mental observation hearing for January.

Murray, 23, is charged with first-degree murder while armed in the killing of Isiah Agyekum. On July 23, 2015, police found Agyekum, 25, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds on the 100 block of Darrington St., SW. Agyekum was transported to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Murray is charged with first-degree murder while armed, along with his identical twin brother Marquese Murray, 24, and Turell Campbell, 23.

All three suspects are being held without bond, and have a status hearing on Dec. 15 at 11 a.m.
