Teen soundcloud star Tay-K found guilty in first murder case and is facing 5-99 years in prison

Tay-K was found guilty of murder on Friday in one of his cases and will be facing a 5-99 year prison sentence.

He avoided a more serious capital murder charge that would've mandated a minimum prison stay of 40 years.

If you're unfamiliar with his story, Tay-K was placed on house arrest for this first murder case in 2016 when he was 16. He cut his ankle monitor off and then went on the run. While on the run, he was allegedly involved in another murder and he continued making music.

The day he was found and arrested again, he dropped a song on Soundcloud about his time on the lam. "The Race" was a viral hit and he famously signed a new record deal a few months later from jail.

He's still awaiting trial for the second murder case.
