SNOW HILL, MD – Convicted murderer Skylor Dupree Harmon has requested a new trial. Worcester Circuit Court Judge Thomas C. Groton, III has indicated that he will consider Harmon’s motion at his sentencing hearing.
Harmon was convicted of first-degree murder in the May 2010 shooting of Reginald Handy, Jr. on a Pocomoke street. Harmon is asking for a new trial due to incompetence of counsel, insufficient evidence and the fact that photographs taken days before trial were allowed to be included as evidence. Harmon also took exception to testimony from Torrance Davis, a witness who testified against him during the trial.
