Antron "Big Lurch" Singleton was convicted
of murder and aggravated mayhem this week for the April 2002 slaying of Tynisha
Ysais, 21, who was found in her apartment with her chest ripped open.
Ysais’ boyfriend, Thomas Moore, testified that
he and Singleton spent the evening prior to the murder smoking PCP.
The next day a friend of Ysais’ saw Singleton
on the street naked, his stomach and mouth were covered with blood.
She flagged down an officer who arrested Lurch.
When officers were called to Ysais’ apartment, they found a grizzly scene. According
to police, they found "her chest was open, exposing internal organs."
Ysais’ right lung was also chewed and torn.
Jurors will deliberate today and will consider
Singleton’s claim that he was insane at the time of the murder.
