Suspect in killing of BPD official's husband takes the stand

A man accused of killing a Baltimore police official's husband last year took the stand in his own defense. Sahiou Kargbo, 19, was charged in February 2022 with first- and second-degree murder in the killing of James Blue III, who was the husband of Baltimore police Capt. Lekisha Blue. She returned to court Friday, surrounded by friends and family. The state rested its case Friday afternoon and the judge denied a defense motion for acquittal. On the stand, Kargbo told the jury his version of events, saying he was scared, that the victim was the aggressor and that he only pulled trigger twice.
