D.D.C.: Evidence at the detention hearing supports PC for a DNA test for defendant

Defendant was indicted and then the government sought a DNA test to connect him to the case. Based on the detention hearing, evidence showed “(1) links the defendant’s gun to the murder weapon; (2) connects scented oil vials found at the crime scene to the defendant; (3) matches a fingerprint from the crime scene to the defendant; and (4) indicates that the defendant engaged in premeditated activity based on several eyewitnesses identifying the defendant as being present outside Ms. Noel’s apartment in the days prior to her murder.” Also, defendant had been indicted and not just arrested as in King. United States v. Ausby, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132042 (D.D.C. Aug. 7, 2019).
