A married couple and their son were sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of release on Tuesday after being found guilty of first-degree premeditated murder in the shooting death of a security officer who insisted that the woman’s daughter wear a mask while shopping.
On May 1, 2020, Genesee Circuit Court Judge Brian Pickell handed down sentences to Larry Teague, his wife Sharmel Teague, and Sharmel Teague’s son, Ramonyea Bishop, in connection with the shooting death of Calvin Munerlyn.
Following a trial that lasted several weeks, the three were found guilty of first-degree premeditated murder, a crime requiring a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole, according to The Flint Journal.
According to Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton, Munerlyn, 43, was shot at the store just north of downtown Flint shortly after informing Sharmel Teague’s daughter that she had to leave because she didn’t have a mask.
Later, according to the investigation, two guys entered the business and fatally shot the security guard.
Brya Bishop, Bishop’s sister, was accused of tampering with evidence, lying to police, and aiding and abetting a crime.
She was given probation and time served in November.
