Three men charged with the murder of Derryk Johnson, 19, are scheduled for trial in September of next year.
Marcus Martin, Marc Butler, and William Cunningham Jr. appeared in court for a status hearing where defense attorneys discussed a potential deal in the works.
Defense Attorney Dana Page on behalf of Marcus Martin stated that the defense team and the government attorney were, “in the process of negotiating something,” and that they are, “going to keep working on that process.”
Johnson, 19, and another male were found suffering from apparent gunshot wounds on Aug. 3 2016 in the 600 block of N St., NW. Both victims were taken to the hospital, where Johnson died from his injuries.
A jury trial is set to take place on Sept. 10, 2018.
