The man accused of murdering Jerimiah Williamson on the railroad tracks near 2500 Georgetown Street in 2022 received a trial date on April 20. 

Jerritt Barron’s trial was set for Oct. 11; however, Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa M. Phinn did not assign a judge to the case at this time. 

According to the Maryland Judiciary website, Barron, 21, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, firearm use in a felony violent crime, illegal possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm as a minor in connection to an incident on June 22, 2022.

Charging documents state that Williamson was found face down with a single gunshot wound to the head behind his right ear, in addition to evidence showing that his body was partially burned. 

On Nov. 28, 2022, Barron admitted to being at the scene of the crime and running through the woods to the 1600 block of Hartman Street. Barron also stated that a nine-millimeter handgun was used in the crime. The handgun was recovered on his person when he was arrested for a separate incident.
