An attempted murder defendant did not appear for his trial scheduling hearing before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn on Jan. 24 due to his health.

Defendant Victor Shuron II did not appear for his hearing because he was hospitalized, according to the defense attorney standing in for John Cox on Tuesday. The defendant was unable to be presented via zoom despite the court waiting all morning to see if he would appear.
