During a Nov. 28 Baltimore reception court proceeding, Baltimore City Circuit Judge Melissa Phinn set a trial date for two co-defendants implicated in an attempted murder.

Alicia Ford, 35, and Tracey Louis Crosby Hargrove, 35, are both charged with first-degree and second-degree attempted murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree and second-degree assault, use of a weapon with intended injury, conspiracy to use a firearm during a violent felony, use of a firearm during a violent felony, and inducing or inhibiting testimony in connection to an incident on April 16.

At Monday’s hearing, parties agreed to begin trial on Jan. 20, 2023, despite the Hicks Rule permitting defendants to be tried within 180 days of their first court appearance or their attorney’s first appearance. 

Ford waived this right, stating, “January is fine.”

As for the remainder of the proceeding, the defense and prosecution informed Judge Phinn that they will communicate further with one another to reach a resolution regarding a plea offer.

Hargrove is currently being held on home confinement, according to his defense attorney, Amanda Savage
