Trial continues in alleged murder of Dana Hamilton

The trial against Quincy Green, 34, also known as Wayne Wright, resumed for the alleged murder of Dana Hamilton.

Green is charged with second-degree murder while armed for the shooting of Hamilton, 44.

The defense introduced a motion to suppress evidence that the MPD obtained, contesting the legality of the seizure of the evidence and the validity of the warrant. The evidence in question is Green’s cellphone, which would be able to provide the MPD and government attorneys with information regarding Green’s location, along with conversations or calls made through the phone. Once the government responded, Judge Puig-Lugo asserted that whatever evidence obtained from the cellphone that was of questionable police conduct, would be inadmissible in court.

At the time of the murder, Green was being monitored by a GPS tracking device. However, the device was placed on Green’s right leg, which is a prosthetic. When Green was picked up by police on May 25, he was found without the GPS device on his person, implying that he may have removed the GPS device prior to the murder so that he could not be monitored.

Green is being held without bail. The trial will resume on December 6 at 10 a.m.
