Attempted murder charges against Terrance Belton were dismissed on March 10 for an incident in December 2018.

During reception court, the prosecution informed Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn that the state’s attorney’s office is dismissing the charges, which also included assault, armed robbery, robbery, reckless endangerment, theft, and five weapons charges.

Defense counsel Amy Stone was not present during the proceeding, but the prosecutor said the defense attorney was aware of the dismissal. The charges stemmed from an incident on Dec. 15, 2018; however, the details of the case were not discussed on Friday.

Belton, 23, is currently serving a 13-year sentence for the death of 32-year-old Edward Calloway on Dec. 6, 2018, for which he was convicted of manslaughter and weapons charges in 2020. The defendant also faced murder charges for the death of 25-year-old Aaron Long on Oct. 18, 2018, but was found not guilty in October 2022.
