    WASHINGTON — The man charged with fatally stabbing a woman as she was out for an evening run in a popular D.C. neighborhood in September shoplifted a kitchen knife from a nearby grocery store just minutes before the attack, according to police.
    [.....]
    Crawford, who is represented by a public defender, has yet to enter a plea. The purpose of the preliminary hearing was to determine whether federal prosecutors had enough evidence to continue with their case against Crawford, but the presenting of evidence took longer than expected and Judge Craig Iscoe delayed his ruling until Friday.

    His fiancee was killed on a run in Logan Circle. He was left with the rest of his life.
    December 17, 2018
    On a chilly December morning, nearly three months after the runner’s death, her makeshift memorial was still visible.

    But things had changed.

    The pairs of running shoes and dozens of bouquets that had been arranged outside the Chinese American restaurant were gone. The few flowers that remained had wilted, and containers that once held candles now overflowed with dirty rainwater. Colorful wax was strewn about the pavement.
    [...]
    “She might not be physically here, but who she was and what she represented will remain,” he said. “And will win. And will illuminate the lives of many other people.”

    MAN WHO ALLEGEDLY STABBED DC RUNNER TO DEATH FOUND NOT ‘COMPETENT’

    02/13/2019

    "A judge ruled Tuesday that the man charged with stabbing a female runner to death in Washington, D.C., is temporarily incompetent and delayed further court proceedings.

    Tuesday’s decision comes after authorities performed a mental health test on Crawford and deemed he was not competent, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman, WTOP reported.

    The ruling follows a Sept. 18, 2018, incident in which Anthony Crawford, 23, allegedly stabbed runner Wendy Martinez, 35, in the head and neck while she was in the city’s Logan Circle neighborhood....

    Crawford has a history of mental illness and should be placed in a psychiatric hospital, according to testimony from his public defender, WTOP reported. A relative of Crawford’s also shared with law enforcement that he is bipolar and schizophrenic, and had stopped taking his medication at the time he attacked Martinez, according to WTOP...

    His next hearing is tentatively set for March 8, according to Department of Behavioral Health spokesman Bill Miller.

    The Department of Behavioral Health has recommended Crawford go through a full evaluation of his competency at the D.C. jail where he’s being held."
