Rapper Tay-K being charged as adult in murder case

Rapper Tay-K has one of the biggest songs out right now titled “The Race” which is unable to perform due to his incarceration. In July 2016, when Tay-K was 16, he was involved in a home invasion in Mansfield, Texas that resulted in the death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker. He was placed under house arrest but was able to cut off his ankle monitor. He fled to New Jersey where he was caught by US Marshalls. He is also a suspect in another murder case for an incident that took place after a 2015 Daytona Boyz concert.

Yesterday, his lawyer revealed that the now-17-year-old will be tried for murder as an adult in the first case.

Here’s a statement from Tay-K’s lawyer:

“We just concluded the “certification transfer” hearing for Mr. Mcintyre. The judge has ruled that his case should be moved to adult court case based on his age (and the fact that the juvenile court will lack jurisdiction soon). The judge was very clear to tell Mr. Mcintyre on the record that this decision had no bearing whatsoever of his guilt/ innocence in this case. After a full day of hearing with numerous officers testifying under oath, officers testified there was no evidence that Mr. Mcintyre engaged in any violent act or possessed any weapons. Mr Mcintyre remains upbeat after this hear. I believe once all of the evidence is presented, Mr. Mcintyre will be exonerated on all charges. We look forward to moving ahead.”

There is a possibilty Tay-K will beat the case since there is a lack of evidence proving his guilt. He has a bright future if he can get through his legal issues.

Well keep you up to date as this story develops.
