The Tarrant County jury sentenced Tay-K, whose legal name is Taymor McIntyre, to 30 years in prison for a number of serious robberies and to 13 years in jail for each of the two remaining cases of serious robbery
said a court clerk.
According to witnesses, Tay-K was part of a plan to steal drugs and money from the victim's home in Mansfield, Dallas-Fort Worth, KTVT reported.
According to KTVT, the victim, Ethan Walker, did not have the drugs or money the robbers were looking for, the witnesses said. Walker's girlfriend testified that he was shot while his hands were in the air.
Tay-K's lawyers argued that he was not the person who fired the gun and therefore should not be found guilty, according to KTVT. The prosecution said that Tay-K knew Walker was to be robbed.
