Prosecution: Possible more than 1 person involved in Savopoulos murders

It has been over five months since a wealthy D.C. family and their housekeeper were found murdered inside their Northwest D.C. home. The man charged with first-degree murder in this case was back in court on Friday for a status hearing.

Daron Wint is accused of killing Savvas and Amy Savopoulos, their son Philip, and their housekeeper, Vera Figueroa. Court documents in this case revealed some of the victims had been beaten and their home was later set on fire.

According to investigators, Wint’s DNA has been linked to pizza crust found at the home.

In court, prosecutors asked the judge to delay the hearing until mid-December.

The only discussion came when Wint's lawyer asked prosecutors to reveal the name of a witness who apparently saw someone driving a Porsche stolen from the home along New York Avenue. The witness described the person in the car as having short hair.

The prosecution refused and an assistant U.S. attorney told the judge, "It is quite possible more than one person is involved."

Meanwhile, at the crime scene on Friday, all is quiet at the Savopoulos home. Much of the house is boarded up and the doors are sealed.

There was no discussion today about the $30,000 found in Wint's possession when he was arrested on Rhode Island Avenue.

The next hearing for Wint has been scheduled for December 17.
