MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – The second of two men convicted in the abduction and murder of Matthew Landry will be sentenced Thursday.
18-year-old Robert Taylor, of Detroit, faces life in prison without parole for the murder of Landry, who was abducted from an Eastpointe sub shop in 2009. Taylor, who was 16 at the time of the murder, was convicted by a Macomb County jury on all six counts of helping Ihab Maslamani abduct and kill Landry. The 21-year-old Landry, of Chesterfield Township, was found shot in the head in a vacant Detroit house.
Maslamani is currently serving life in prison. He and Taylor were also accused of robbing a bank.
