Prosecutors Seek To Have Tay-K Tried As An Adult In His Capital Murder Case

The teenager is headed back to court.

(AllHipHop News) Taymor "Tay-K" McIntyre was already sentenced to 55 years in prison for a murder conviction. The 19-year-old rhymer is still facing another capital murder charge in another case.

Bexar County prosecutors want Tay-K to be tried as an adult for the 2017 murder of 23-year-old Mark Saldivar. McIntyre was 16 years old at the time of the shooting which took place near a Chick-fil-A in San Antonio.

"The Race" rapper was tried as an adult in the Tarrant County trial. Tay-K was also 16 when he apparently took part in a home invasion that left 21-year-old Ethan Matthew Walker dead. He received 30 years for one count of aggravated robbery and 13 years for two counts of aggravated robbery which will run concurrently with the murder sentence.

According to reports, McIntyre's legal team is appealing his murder and robbery convictions. In addition, the viral sensation is also accused of robbing and assaulting a 65-year-old man in Arlington, Texas.

Tay-K's "The Race" peaked at #44 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and #11 on the Rap Streaming Songs chart. Lyrics from the single were used in court as a way to convince the jury that the teenager openly admitted to his alleged criminal activity.
