Teen rapper Taymor McIntyre — also known as Tay-K — was found guilty of murder today Friday morning, by a north Texas Jury.
Meanwhile, the jury has asked to see evidence presented when the medical examiner testified about the victim, Ethan Walker. The group took another look at autopsy photos, as well as the single bullet that killed the 21-year-old.
The Victim, Walker was shot in the stomach after he told McIntyre and a group of other robbers that he didn’t have any drugs or money.
Tay Kay wasn’t the person who fired the gun that killed Walker, and his attorneys argued that was one of the reasons he should be found not guilty.
Prosecutors made argued that the rapper knew the plan to steal drugs and money from the house in Mansfield in 2016, would end with someone being shot.
The home invasion robbery was actually planned by a 15-year-old girl. Early this week one of her friends testified that she reached out to Tay Kay on Instagram, believing he could get guns for the robbery.
The teen rapper responded to her saying he didn’t have a gun, but his friends did and he knew one who was “trigger happy.”
McIntyre gained notoriety when he went on the run after the murder, and recorded a song and video about fleeing.
For the murder of Walker McIntyre faces between 5 and 99 years in prison.
