Man Who Beat Murder Charge Now Accused of Attempted Murder

Carl Reneau

A man, who just got off a murder charge earlier this month and is facing attempted murder and other charges, was this morning told to apply for bail before the judge who is presiding over his case for attempted murder.  Supreme Court Justice Francis Cumberbatch advised Carl Reneau to seek bail from Justice Marilyn Williams, who is presiding over his case for the stabbing of Robert Hower.  Hower was stabbed while he was walking on Antelope Street on the night of March ninth, 2013.  Just three weeks ago, on March second, Reneau, who was on trial for the 2017 murder of Jaheem Mahler, was acquitted after defense attorney, Baja Shoman made a no case submission before Justice Colin Williams in a trial without a jury.  Shoman’s submission was based on discrepancies in the testimony of the main witness and the fact that no one who could positively identify Reneau as the shooter.  The other offenses which Reneau is now facing were allegedly committed before he was arrested and remanded for the Mahler’s murder.
