On July 25, non-fatal shooting co-defendants Keisha Clark and Tyrelle Fields’ defense counsel filed a joint motion with the prosecution for a postponement of trial due to Fields’ attorney, Augustine Okeke, testing positive for COVID-19.
Clark, 45, is charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and various charges involving robbery, armed robbery and firearm possession.
Fields, 38, is charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, armed robbery, theft and multiple firearm-related charges.
According to a press release, on May 5, Clark allegedly set up her ex-boyfriend to be shot by Fields, her cousin, on the 700 block of North Paca Street.
The victim sustained gunshot injuries to the arm and leg.
Prior to Monday’s hearing, Fields and the victim had a verbal altercation outside of the courthouse concerning an open warrant for the victim’s arrest for theft-related charges.
Clark and Fields’ trial is scheduled for Dec. 15, according to Maryland’s Judiciary website.Follow this case
