Donte Dominique Douglass found guilty of killing Corteza Livingston

A 19-year-old Capitol Heights man was found guilty of second-degree murder and attempted murder by a jury Thursday.

Donte Dominique Douglass was found guilty for killing Corteza Livingston and attempting to kill the man’s brother, Demicio Livingston, in Forestville in January.

Carla Williams and Douglass drove to Demicio Livingston’s home on Jan. 8, where she was to drop off her two-year old son. At the residence, Williams and Demicio started a physical fight. Livingston’s brother and other passengers had been sitting in Williams’ car but came out when they saw the fight and started to argue.

Corteza Livingston tried to convince them to get back in the car and drive away. Instead, Douglass shot Corteza Livingston eight times with a semi-automatic gun. Corteza Livingston was pronounced dead at the hospital. Demicio Livingston was shot twice in the leg, including once as he was attempting to escape the gunfire.

In addition to second-degree murder, the jury found Donte Dominique Douglass guilty of using a handgun in a crime of violence, attempted murder and first-degree assault.

Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Beverly Woodard will sentence Douglass on October 28, 2011. He faces 100 years in prison.
