Judge Schedules Attempted Murder Defendant for Trial in December

A 26-year-old Baltimore woman charged with attempted murder was scheduled for trial in December on Aug. 4 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn.

Keontae Jackson is charged with attempted first and second-degree murder, armed carjacking, carjacking, first-degree assault, use of a firearm during a violent crime, car theft, unauthorized removal of property, having a handgun within 100 yards of a public place, having a handgun in her vehicle, and having a handgun on her person in connection to an incident on Oct. 26, 2021. 

During the last hearing, Jackson was offered a plea of life suspending all but 25 years with 5 years on supervised probation for attempted first-degree murder. Defense counsel said she still needs time to make a decision on the offer. 

Counsel also came to an agreement on a trial date.

Jackson was represented by defense attorney Judit Otvos.

Jackson’s trial is scheduled for Dec. 6.
