Separate trials for each of the three co-defendants charged with the murder of 21-year-old Amare Burrus will begin in late-January 2024.

Darrean Fleming, Wesley Lambert and Garry Morris are all facing two counts of first-degree murder and single counts of firearm use in a felony or violent crime and having a handgun in a vehicle in connection to their alleged involvement in Burrus’ death on the 4200 block of Pimlico Road on Dec. 7, 2022.

According to court documents, Fleming and Morris were talking with someone who, moments later, was shot at by Burrus in a parking lot on the 4400 block of Park Heights Avenue. Baltimore Police Department (BPD) detectives recovered video footage of the incident that then showed all three codefendants get into a gray Acura TL in a nearby McDonald’s parking lot and follow Burrus, who had run away to the 4200 block of Pimlico Road.

Minutes later, the victim’s body was found with a gunshot wound to the head in the front yard of a residence.

During reception court on Sept. 19, Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn scheduled the trio’s trials for next year, beginning with Lambert, 21, on Jan. 29, 2024, before Judge Charles H. Dorsey III. Fleming, 23, will follow with his trial on Feb. 20, 2024, before Judge Lawrence P. Fletcher-Hill, with Morris, 23, having his trial on Feb. 27, 2024, before Judge Jeannie J. Hong.

Defense attorneys Michael Tomko, Julie Shapiro and Mary Lloyd Patton represent Fleming, Lambert and Morris, respectively. Lawrence Rosenberg, another defense attorney, stood in for Tomko on Tuesday.

The codefendants were arrested in February.
