Attempted Murder Defendant’s Hearing Postponed

A 27-year-old Baltimore man charged with attempted murder had his hearing postponed on Sept. 21 until Friday before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn

Nyeki Glover is charged with first and second-degree attempted murder, first and second-degree assault, use of a firearm during a felony violent crime, having a handgun on his person, having a handgun in a vehicle, reckless endangerment, and discharging firearms in connection to an incident on Sept. 17, 2021. 

Glover’s defense counsel Koryn High, rejected a plea of life, suspending all but 25 years with five years supervised probation for first-degree attempted murder; 20 years with the first five years without the possibility of parole for use of a firearm during a felony violent crime, the charges were set to run concurrently. 

Under the plea, the defendant would have had to stay away from the victim and register as a gun offender. 

The prosecutor requested the case be held over until Friday, Sept. 23 because he needed to get into contact with the officer involved in the case regarding scheduling a trial date.

The prosecutor said he believed the trial date will likely be in 2023. 

Judge Phinn granted the request. The defendant’s hearing is set to continue on Sept. 23.
