Homicide Defendant Set for Another Trial After Being Convicted for Separate Homicide in 2018

Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn scheduled a homicide defendant for a trial in September after being convicted in 2018 for a fatal shooting.

Terrance Belton, 22  is charged with first-degree murder, use of a firearm during a violent crime, and conspiracy to first-degree murder in connection to an incident on Oct.18, 2018. Belton’s co-defendant is this case is Rawne Gibbs, 22.

The trial, which was slated to begin on Feb. 8, was postponed due to the suspension of jury selection with the rise of COVID-19 cases.

In January of 2020, Belton was found guilty of manslaughter for shooting Edward Calloway, who was found suffering from a gunshot wound in the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood in South Baltimore. He was also convicted of using a firearm during a crime of violence and carrying a handgun.

According to the Baltimore Sun, a street brawl broke out between Belton’s friend and Calloway on the 1900 block of McHenry Street on Dec. 6, 2018. At some point during the fight, Calloway, 32, shifted his attention to Belton and started to “walk quickly” toward him. Belton allegedly pulled out a gun and fatally shot Calloway.

Belton was represented by defense attorney Amy Stone.

Belton’s retrial is scheduled for Sept. 27.
