A murder defendant had his trial postponed before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn on Feb. 8 due to new evidence in the case.

On Wednesday, the prosecution did not have a plea offer for defendant Devin Davis because defense counsel, Andrea Jaskulsky, said she had new discovery for the prosecution to consult in addition to a witness.

Judge Phinn rescheduled the trial to begin on June 5 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Nicole Barmore.  

According to the Maryland Judiciary website, the 43-year-old defendant is charged with first-degree murder and firearm use in a felony violent crime in connection with an incident that occurred on July 4, 2021.
