Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Videtta A. Brown postponed the sentencing for a 31-year-old man who was found guilty in the fatal stabbing of his roommate on Jan. 23, 2020. 

Defendant Epentus Henriques, was expected to be sentenced on June 13 by Judge Brown but was informed by the court that his defense attorney, Brandon Mead, wasn’t available, leading to the postponement.

The defendant was found guilty on Jan. 3 for first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon with the intent to injure in connection to the death of 29-year-old Isaiah Drummond.

According to Baltimore Witness, the defendant confessed to the murder and led police to the river at approximately 1:42 p.m., near the 100 block of Redbird Avenue, where he discarded the body. 

Judge Brown sets the new sentencing date for July 13 upon Judge Yolanda A. Tanner.
