Arrest in June Md. slaying

Prince George's County police arrested a Bladensburg man Sunday in connection with the June slaying of a Capitol Heights teenager who died days after he was assaulted walking home from the Addison Road Metro station, authorities said.

Devin Reginald Burgess, 23, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Christopher William Moody, 17, who was assaulted in the early morning hours of June 26, authorities said. Police said the assault stemmed from a personal dispute between the two.

Moody was transported to the hospital after the assault, and he died on June 29, authorities have said.

Why not first degree murder?
It really doesn't matter because a PG County jury will acquit him anyway.

There may have been a question of whether it was the result of mutual combat. Not sure. There are few details here.
