Homicide Defendant Rejects Plea

A 20-year-old woman charged with shooting two men, one fatally, rejected a plea offer during reception court on Oct. 12 at Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Yonah White allegedly shot a 23-year-old man in the arm and fatally shot 19-year-old Deon Brown on Oct. 13, 2020, on the 600 block of North Ellwood Avenue around 10:40 p.m. according to CBS Baltimore.

White is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy to first-degree murder, and two counts of firearm use in the commission of a crime.

The prosecution offered a plea of life, suspending all but 60 years, and five years of probation but did not say for what charge. 

White and her defense attorney, Lawrence Rosenberg, rejected the offer.

A trial was set for March 29, 2022.
