NEW BRITAIN – One of three suspects charged in a home invasion entered a plea of not guilty in New Britain Superior Court Thursday.
Dynell Cyrus Hall, 19, of Hartford is charged with multiple offenses including conspiracy to commit home invasion, conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit larceny.
Domonick Christopher Mathews, 24, of Newington, and Deandre Lloyd Brown, 20, of East Hartford are also charged.
The three wore black and white bandanas on their faces as they entered a woman’s home on Stanley Street the night of Jan. 14, according to police reports.
One of suspects allegedly pinned the victim down as the others stole items from the home including an iPad, iPhone four bottles of wine and a DVD player.
The three were later spotted by police less than two-miles from the home after a description of them, obtained from a witness to the alleged home invasion, was immediately broadcast to police.
The three tried to flee but were stopped on the Stanley Street overpass with most of the items stolen in the home invasion in the car, the police report stated.
The case was continued to March 20 after Hall’s attorney Rodvald Jones said he received some discovery Thursday morning and needed to review it. Prosecutor Rob Mullins had no objection.
Hall, Matthews and Brown all remain in custody on $500,000 bond. Matthews is due back in court March 12. Brown is due back in court March 7.
