Keith Davis Jr.’s fifth murder trial would happen in Baltimore courtroom, as judge rejects prosecutors’ request to move it outside city

June 7, 2022

If Keith Davis Jr. is tried on the same murder charge for the fifth time, the trial will take place in a Baltimore courtroom. Baltimore Circuit Court Judge John Nugent denied prosecutors’ request to have murder case against Davis and a separate attempted murder case moved to another county. Prosecutors contended that extensive pretrial publicity, highlighted by the escalating campaign pushing for State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to drop charges against Davis, would make it impossible to seat a jury or for the state to receive a fair trial in Baltimore.
