Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Troy K. Hill declared a mistrial for one of the co-defendants in a Pimlico Road murder, after the jury could not come to a unanimous decision June 10.

Darrean Fleming, 24, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, firearm use in a violent felony crime and having a handgun in a vehicle in the murder of 20-year-old Amare Burruss on the 4200 block of Pimlico Road, back in December 2022. 

Michael Tomko, Fleming’s defense attorney, came out of the courtroom while the jury was still deliberating and told family members how loudly the jury was arguing, apparently unable to come to an agreement Monday morning. 

Fleming will next appear in reception court June 12 before Judge Melissa K. Copeland.   Since Fleming was not acquitted he could be retried on the same charges.

One of Fleming’s co-defendants, Wesley Lambert, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder back in May. The other co-defendant, Garry Morris will be tried later in the summer for his alleged involvement in the murder.
