Dwight Q. Jackson, 20, and Shaquille D. Maxwell, 20, both of Windomere Avenue, have been charged with first degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and three additional charges.

Maxwell’s trial is slated for September 27 and 28 in Richmond Circuit Court.

Jackson’s trial was slated for May, but was continued so the defense team could have more time to go over forensic evidence submitted by the prosecution.

He had a hearing on July 5, but a new trial date has not yet been set.
