19-year-old American Rapper, Tay-K Sentenced to 55 Years in Prison for Deadly Home Invasion

Texas rapper Tay-K has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for murder.

The 19-year-old, whose legal name is Taymor McIntyre, was charged in the 2016 death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker, who was shot and killed in his own Mansfield, Texas, home during a robbery.
McIntyre was also sentenced to 30 years in prison for one count of aggravated robbery and 13 years each for two other counts of aggravated robbery, in addition to $21,000 in fines Tuesday, according to the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office.

The sentences will run concurrently.

 

McIntyre was found guilty Friday after prosecutors said he organized the home invasion and recruited the man who shot and killed Walker. (The trigger man was sentenced last year to life in prison.)

McIntyre rose to fame with his 2017 single “The Race,” recorded while he was a fugitive, which appeared on Billboard’s Hot 100. In the song, McIntyre raps about running from the police.
The song’s music video, which features the rapper posing next to his own wanted poster, has more than 174 million views on YouTube
