Defense Counsel Files a Not Criminally Responsible Plea in Double Homicide Case

A 20-year-old Baltimore man charged with murder had his hearing postponed due to his counsel filing a not criminally responsible plea on Sept. 19 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn

In March, Charles Anderson was found competent to stand trial in a double homicide that occurred on July 2, 2019.

Anderson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, two counts of use of a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy to use a firearm during a felony violent crime, two counts of armed robbery, two counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, three counts of robbery, two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery, having a handgun on his person, and conspiracy to wearing/carrying a handgun.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Anderson and his co-defendant Donyell Morris, who was 18 at the time of the incident, were allegedly involved in the fatally shooting of 26-year-old Brittany Foster in the head and an unidentified 28-year-old man in the chest on the 1200 block of Bloomingdale Road. 

Anderson’s defense counsel Bradley MacFee informed the court that he filed an NCR plea for his client and will hire his own doctor to conduct the evaluation. MacFee also requested a postponement until the assessment is complete. 

Anderson’s next hearing is scheduled for Nov. 15.
