Charge Changed to First-Degree Murder in Columbia Heights Slaying

The second-degree murder charge against teen Rashid Caviness-Bey was amended Thursday, just one day before Caviness-Bey was scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.

Caviness-Bey is now suspected of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Osman Al-Akbar on Aug. 17.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. today (Friday).
