DC Robbery Murder Suspect to be Held until Hearing


Despite the arguments of his Washington DC Criminal Defense Attorney, a man accused of slaying two store clerks during a botched robbery attempt was ordered held until his preliminary hearing on August 3. While his public defender argued that Christian Taylor, 25, should be released because he has no prior record of violent offenses, a DC Superior Court judge disagreed after noting that the suspect tested positive for cocaine after his arrest.

Taylor's arrest came after he was identified on surveillance video as the man who shot and killed a men's clothing store owner and his son while attempting to rob the store.
