Md. man charged in fatal stabbing
A Hyattsville man who prosecutors said sold drugs in the mid- to late 1980s with the notorious D.C. drug kingpin Rayful Edmond and his crew was charged with first-degree premeditated murder Thursday in the fatal stabbing of a man in Northeast Washington in June.
Prosecutors charged Christopher L. Johnson, 42, with killing Jermaine Jones, 36, during a fight in the 1200 block of Simms Place NE on June 7. A medical examiner’s report said Jones died of multiple stab wounds.
Four witnesses said they saw Johnson and Jones together before Jones was killed.
At his hearing Thursday, Magistrate Judge Diana Harris Epps ordered Johnson held in D.C. jail until another hearing Sept. 22 before Judge Gerald Fisher.
