Attempted Murder Defendant’s Trial Postponed Due to Prosecutor Not Being Prepared

On June 15, homicide defendant Davin Watson’s trial was postponed due to the prosecution’s unreadiness for trial.

Watson, 37, is charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a firearm during a violent crime, having a handgun on his person, and possession of a firearm with a felony conviction in connection to an incident that occurred on September 17, 2021.

During court proceedings, the prosecutor requested to postpone the trial due to an inability to locate their primary witness. The primary witness was previously incarcerated and released last week, said the prosecutor. Two detectives unsuccessfully attempted to locate the witness who was said to be a friend of Watson.

Watson’s defense attorney Arthur McGreevy told Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn that he was prepared for trial.

Judge Phinn agreed to postpone the defendant’s hearing.

Watson’s next hearing is scheduled for June 21.
