(AllHipHop News) Taymor McIntyre was convicted of murder in connection to the shooting death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker during a 2016 home invasion. The rapper better known as Tay-K was 16 when the incident occurred, but he was tried as an adult.
Tay-K pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated robbery in the case, and he was also found guilty of a third aggravated robbery charge. A Forth Worth jury sentenced the 19-year-old Texan to 55 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. According to the Star-Telegram, McIntyre has appealed his conviction and sentence.
The prosecution presented Tay-K's hit record "The Race" in court because the song supposedly detailed his criminal activity. Richard Walker, the father of the victim, stated, "Every lyric to ‘The Race’ is stained with my son’s blood. Every ‘free Tay-K’ T-shirt that was ever sold has my son’s blood on it."
Tay-K is also facing a separate capital murder charge in San Antonio. The incarcerated teenager is accused of killing 23-year-old photographer Mark Anthony Saldivar in 2017. He is also suspected of robbing and assaulting a 65-year-old man in Arlington.
