Week Ahead

Each Friday, Homicide Watch brings you a list of upcoming hearings in the cases we follow. All hearings are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted. To add an item to the listing, email homicidewatchdc [at] gmail.com. To see scheduled court hearings beyond next week, see our calendar.

On Monday, John Bolton is expected for a status hearing with Judge Thomas Motley. Bolton pleaded innocent to a first-degree murder charge in the May 25 shooting death of Christopher Fletcher.

On Tuesday, Jerome Bailey is expected for sentencing in the shooting death of Rico Matthews last year. Bailey has pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder, in what prosecutors believe was a fight over a woman. Judge Lynn Leibovitz will preside.

Rashad Slye is due in court for a preliminary hearing with Judge Fisher. Slye is suspected of first-degree murder in the October shooting death of cab driver Domingo Ezirike.

On Wednesday, Charles Coates is expected for a status hearing with Judge Fisher. Coates is suspected in the February shooting death of his cousin, Eddie Leonard Jr. Police initially believed that the murder was drug-related and that Coates was only a witness, but later turned their attention to Coates after noting inconsistencies in his story. Prosecutors believe Coates might have robbed Leonard of money to help pay for a cable bill.

Phillip Swan, Terrell Wilson and Theodore Spencer are expected for a status hearing with Judge Motley. They are suspected in the June death of Glenn Scarborough.

Raymond Roseboro is due for a status hearing with Judge Leibovitz. Roseboro pleaded innocent to a charge of first-degree murder while armed in connection with the shooting death last year of 16-year-old Prince Okorie, in what prosecutors believe was retaliation for rumors that Okorie had talked to police about the involvement of Eric Foreman, a close friend of Roseboro’s, in the murder of Catholic University grad student Neil Godleski.

Please remember that court dates can change, even at the last minute. To view the docket of a case please go to the D.C. Courts website and search by the defendant’s name.
