FLINT, MI – Toron Cortez Fisher received a guilty verdict related to a double homicide in 2016 of two 19-year-old’s.
A jury convicted Toron Fisher, 21-years-old, of first degree murder and second degree murder related to the April 18, 2016 shooting deaths of Sasha Bell and Sacorya Reed, both 19-years-old. He was also convicted of two counts of felony firearm.
According to the police investigation and testimony at trial, Fisher and his cousin, Malek Thornton, went to the victims’ shared apartment at Ridgecrest Apartments in Flint to retaliate for an incident five months earlier in which Thornton had been robbed. The cousins believed that Bell and Reed were involved in setting up Thornton for the robbery.
Bell’s then 16-month old son was left unharmed and alone for almost two days in the apartment before Bell’s sister discovered the bodies.
Fisher faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole when he is sentenced on February 27th.
Thornton had previously plead guilty last October to second degree murder and felony firearm related to the incident and testified against Fisher at trial. Thornton will be sentenced Thursday.
