There have been changes to the case concerning the brutal murders of Savvas and Amy Savopoulos, their son Philip and a housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa, in their Woodley Park home on May 14, 2015.
The trial of Darron Wint is scheduled to begin Sept. 5.
Investigators and court documents have reported that there is likely more than one person culpable. However, the Metropolitan Police Department charged only Wint with the four murders and with fleeing with the $40,000 ransom. The Georgetowner previously reported on the dramatic arrest of Wint, a former welder for American Iron Works — of which Savva Savopoulos was president and CEO — about a week after the murders.
Earlier this month, a judge ruled that evidence in the case could prove the existence of a second suspect. The prosecution has linked several items to Wint’s DNA, firstdiscovered on a piece of pizza at the crime scene.
