A man accused of stabbing a 63-year-old man to death late last month in Germantown got out of jail earlier this year due to coronavirus concerns, court records show.
26-year-old Justin Wilson of Germantown faces first-degree murder charges after the July 23 death of 63-year-old Edigio Ienzi, also of Germantown.
Court records show a Montgomery County judge in April released Wilson from jail, where he was awaiting trial on theft and other charges.
Montgomery County police say one of Ienzi's relatives woke up July 23 to see Ienzi struggling with Wilson, who was holding a knife. Ienzi later died from stab wounds at a nearby hospital.
The relative told police Wilson was in the home three or four weeks earlier. Several silver coins were missing from the home following Wilson's visit.
Police say they arrested Wilson on July 28 in Stafford County, Virginia.
