A 42-year-old Baltimore man’s probation violation hearing was postponed on Dec. 19 for the third time this year before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Kendra Y. Ausby.

Andre Chapel, who was charged with second-degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime for an incident in 1998, is currently scheduled for a hearing on May 17, 2023.

Following the defendant’s original sentence in 1999, Chapel’s sentence was modified in January 2022 to 30 years, suspending all but 15 years, nine months, and 11 days for second-degree murder; and a consecutive 20 years, suspending all but 20 years, and five years of supervised probation for handgun use in the commission of a crime, according to the Maryland Judiciary website.

Chapel’s original sentence is no longer shown on the state website.
