A jury took less than 90 minutes to convict Kelvin Delonte Walker, 23, of first-degree murder, armed robbery and related charges for his part in the killing of Justin Isaacs, said Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks.
He was convicted of fatally shooting Isaacs on the evening of Oct. 10, 2011, when the teen was walking home from a library. Walker and another man, Tyrone Lewis, confronted Isaacs in the 2100 block of Iverson Street and demanded he hand over his property, prosecutors said.
Walker allegedly told his friends he shot Isaacs to prove he was a killer like Lewis. He is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 18.
“We are very pleased that Mr. Walker has been held accountable for his senseless crime,” Alsobrooks said. “It is very troubling to me that a young man cannot walk from a library without being attacked by those looking to steal from him. I want everyone to know that if you commit a heinous crime like this in our county, you will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Lewis is scheduled to go on trial next February.
