Murder trial postponed for girl who police say shot laughing men

The trial of a 15-year-old Baltimore girl charged with first-degree murder has been postponed from today until next week in city circuit court.

Police said Arteesha Holt shot Jose Gonzalez-Coreas and another man during a robbery attempt in August after the men allegedly laughed at the absurdity of such a young girl pointing a gun their way. Gonzalez-Coreas was hit in the head and died a week later. The other man suffered a graze wound. Holt was 14 at the time.

A request by Holt's defense to move her case to juvenile court was denied in May. Her case is now scheduled to be heard July 26.
