CLAYTON, MO (KTRS) – The man accused of fatally shooting a 9-year-old Ferguson girl two years ago will go to trial in January.
St. Louis County Circuit Judge Stanley Wallach has set a trial date for January 22 for 23-year-old De’Eris Brown. He is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Jamyla Bolden in August of 2015.
Police say Brown fired shots into Jamyla’s home, killing her as she was doing homework on her mother’s bed. Jamyla’s mother, Kendrick Henderson, was wounded.
Police have said the mother and child were not the intended targets.
Brown has been jailed on $750,000 cash-only bail since he was charged less than two weeks after the shooting.
