The Tarrant County jury on Friday found 19-year-old Taymor McIntyre of Arlington guilty for his role in the death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker at Walker’s home in Mansfield, southeast of Fort Worth.
Tay-K claims he swallowed a bottle of pills before his arrest and started hearing voices in his head.

The man who shot Walker was sentenced last year to life in prison. Prosecutors have said McIntyre was charged with murder because he recruited the triggerman and organized the robbery.
