A man accused of shooting five co-workers in Edgewood last year will first be tried in May in Delaware, where he also faces shooting charges.
Radee Prince, 38, is scheduled for trial May 8 on charges stemming from a shooting at a Wilmington auto shop Oct. 18, a spokesman for the Delaware Attorney General’s Office said.
Hours before the Wilmington shooting, authorities say Prince shot five co-workers — three fatally — at Advanced Granite Solutions in Edgewood. Bayarsaikhan Tudev, 53; Jose Hidalgo Romero, 34; and Enis Mrvoljak, 48, were killed. Two other workers — Enoc Villegas Sosa, 38, and Jose Roberto Flores Gillen, 37 — were wounded.
Prince was arrested later that evening after a brief foot chase near a high school in Newark, Del. Police say Prince threw a gun after spotting officers approaching him.
Prince has two other court dates scheduled before the trial, on Feb. 26 and April 23. A spokesman for the Delaware Attorney General’s Office said previously that Prince is being represented by the public defender’s office. A call to that office was not returned Friday.
In Delaware, Prince’s charges include first-degree attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. If convicted of the Delaware charges, Prince faces a possible sentence of life without parole.
In Maryland, Prince is charged with first- and second-degree murder, attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and use of a firearm to commit a felony.
