Judge Denies Bail For Trayon Washington In Wendy Fisher Slaying (Mobile)

MOBILE, Alabama A Mobile County judge this morning denied bail for a teenager accused of killing Wendy Fisher on the street outside her home on Racine Avenue in west Mobile.
That means that Trayon Omar Washington, 17, will be jailed pending trial on a murder charge.
For now, Washington is charged with murder, but Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said it could be upgraded to capital murder depending on the circumstances.
The investigation is continuing, she said.
Under state law, murder can be a capital offense if it occurs in or from a vehicle. Witnesses have said one of the men inside the car got out after Fisher had yelled to slow down. If the shooter was completely outside the car when he fired, it could not be a capital offense.
Even if Washington was inside the car at the time, Rich said, prosecutors would not automatically seek a capital murder indictment.
We dont necessarily charge capital murder in every case where it could apply, she said. Thats something we decide after considering all the circumstances. Its just too early to make that determination.
Rich said she does not anticipate arrests today of other people who were inside the car with Washington.
Not at this time, she said. But as I said, the investigation is continuing.
If Washington ever does face a capital charge, his age would limit the punishment he could face, thanks to a string of U.S. Supreme Court decisions over the past decade that have carved out differences in the way the criminal justice system treats juveniles and adults.
Murderers whose crimes occur before they turn 18 cannot be executed. The high court built on that line of reasoning last month in a decision banning automatic life-without-parole sentences for juvenile killers. Under the ruling, a judge could still impose such a prison term, but only have a hearing in which he or she could consider lesser options.
“If I had a son, he’d be just like Trayon!”
With a name like that, he must be Amish.
Still .. and after all ... he IS a would be son of the muslim usurper bastard.
You beat me to it. Was Barry Hussein Kardashian on TV saying that for this particular thug?
Trayon? Sounds like a synthetic fabric.
I thought George already put down Trayon.
This was about as senseless a murder as ever was. I wish the he could fry.
Too bad George didn’t put down this Trayvon.
Teenager Charged for Murder of Wendy Fisher
“Investigators say prison was already on the table for suspect Washington. Although he’s just 17, they say he has quite the wrap sheet.”
“He was out on bond for five offenses. He was actually due in court at 8:30 this morning in front of Judge Youngpeter on five felony cases,” said Rich.
Such a waste. Her life is gone, 2 children now without a mother. He will spend the rest of his in prison, if he survives prison. If he was 1 year older, he might face the death penalty.
Sounds like someone in the car with him told the authorities he was the perp.
“they say he has quite the wrap sheet.”
hee hee hee
Thanks to the Supreme Idiots of the US, we can’t execute this... person or send him up for life with no parole.
Liberalism stinks on ice and so does the SCOTUS.
The unhooded hood who could-—scum ogre shoots down a woman.
Coward and criminal—he deserves a good killing as Rx but will be denied therapy for the cure.
Have Je$$e Jack$on and Al $harlatan shown up yet. Sounds like this crime was racially motivated.
Does anybody want to talk about the two POS that spawned this abomination of a human being? Does anyone want to talk about how this POS was enabled by all the entitlements our tax dollars funded? Does anyone want to ask why the other three persons in the car have not been charged? How about a discussion on the deleterious effects of a welfare culture? Well I do! I want to scream the obvious to every common sense citizen that can make a difference and effect change.
The thugs know this and will do most of their killing before they turn 18, and then on their 18th birthday, they will recruit younger brothers to do their bidding.
