A D.C. Superior Court judge ordered Wayne Jackson be held after a preliminary hearing today in the stabbing death of Kevin Blackwell Jr.
Jackson, 22, of Capitol Heights Md., is charged with felony murder. His case joins those of Harold Maurice Proctor and Christopher Reginald Williams, also suspected in Blackwell’s death.
During the hearing held March 2, the judge listened to the 911 call Blackwell made shortly before he was stabbed to death in Dec.
The recording captures Blackwell’s assailants’ conversation during the attack. Blackwell can be heard pleading for his life.
According to charging documents in the cases, detectives believe Blackwell was killed in a “revenge” robbery.
At Proctor’s preliminary hearing, Detective Detective Wayne Marable said Proctor, and another male, had recently been victims of a robbery perpetrated by Blackwell.
In that robbery, a woman Proctor and others were hanging out with had set Blackwell up to rob them. When the woman suggested on Dec. 17 that she “get money” from Blackwell, the three men agreed and Proctor drove them, at the woman’s direction, to Blackwell’s house in Southeast DC. One of the men in the car with Proctor, angry with Blackwell about the robbery, said Blackwell “had to die,” Marable testified.
When the foursome arrived in Southeast DC, the woman pointed them towards Blackwell’s house, then lured Blackwell, Marable said. The following moments were captured in a 911 call, which was played Friday at Proctor’s hearing.
“Stab this n**** up.”
“Work his pockets.”
“Give me your phone.”
“Come up off that North Face cuz.”
“Get in the f***ing car… C’mon before the police show up.”
“Nah son, I’m bout to stab this n*** up.”
The affidavits in the case against Williams and Jackson includes statements Proctor made to detectives while listening to that 911 call, explaining to detectives what was happening.
Jackson is expected for a preliminary hearing March 3. Williams is expected for a status hearing Friday. Proctor’s case is set for a status hearing April 6.
