Downey brothers guilty on all charges in connection with death of Tylor McInnis

Two brothers from North Preston, N.S., have been found guilty on all charges in connection with the 2016 murder of 26-year-old Tylor McInnis.

A 12-member jury found Shawntez Downey, 27, guilty of second-degree murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and confinement. Daniel Downey was found guilty of accessory to murder after the fact, as well as kidnapping and confinement.

Tylor McInnis’ body was found in the trunk of a stolen car, abandoned in a North Preston cemetery. A coroner concluded that McInnis died of a single gunshot wound.

During the trial, the jury heard that McInnis met Shawntez Downey to exchange drugs for a gun. The Crown argued that the deal went south when Shawntez Downey double-crossed McInnis.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours Thursday before being sequestered for the evening. The verdict came in just after 2:30 p.m. Friday.
