The second man charged in the April 29 murder of Carrollton-area rapper BTY YoungN was arrested Saturday morning (Sept. 23), court records show. Kyron D. Williams, 27, was booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail on second-degree murder.
Williams and Darryl "Dino" Bannister, 32, are accused of killing 27-year-old Desmone Jerome who was fatally shot near the pumps of a Shell gas station in the 9200 block of Airline Highway in Hollygrove.
Bannister was arrested May 15. Criminal District Judge Keva Landrum-Johnson set bond for each defendant at $1 million. Each faces a mandatory life sentence if convicted of the charge.
New Orleans police said Bannister was linked to the killing by a cellphone dropped by one of the two gunmen at the scene. Bannister has maintained his innocence, telling investigators his phone was stolen at a party earlier on the night of the shooting.
Police have acknowledged that another person's DNA profile was found on the phone recovered from the crime scene, but have not said whether those DNA results implicated Williams.
