Per the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office: Before the Honorable John Maloney, a jury found defendant, Tremayne Dorsey, 44, of unknown address, guilty of first-degree murder, felony murder, home invasion, two counts of first-degree assault, and three counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. This stems from an incident on November 30th, 2021, when Dorsey forced his way into an apartment along the 12300 block of Treetop Drive in Silver Spring, shooting and killing 39-year-old James Beverly whose eight-month-old daughter and other family members were just feet away, inside of the unit.
Dorsey also assaulted two women inside of the apartment. As detailed in court proceedings, Dorsey had previously stayed at the residence with the victims and had a falling out with them, so he was known to them. He was found by police nearly a month later in Colonial Heights, VA. Dorsey faces the potential of life in prison when he is sentenced on March 23rd, 2023. Assistant State’s Attorneys Peter Larson and Kimberly Cissel are prosecuting this case.
