The case for a 27-year-old Baltimore woman accused of first-degree murder was rescheduled for reception to pick a trial date on May 20 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn.

Lexus Hart is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and use of a firearm during a violent crime in connection to an incident on Jan. 30. 

During court proceedings on Friday, Judge Phinn listened as the prosecutor informed the court that she does not have an approval plea offer but she anticipates that she will have an approval from her office within 30 days. The prosecutor presented a plea of life for first-degree murder, and 20 years with the first five without parole for use of a firearm during a violent crime, with the charges set to run consecutively. 

Hart and her defense attorney, Roland Harris, rejected the plea. 

Hart’s next hearing is scheduled for July 12.
