'Unjust And Improper Verdict': Attorney For Keon Gray Asks For New Trial In Taylor Hayes Case

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- The attorney for a man found guilty of murder in the 2018 death of a 7-year-old girl has filed a motion for a new trial.

Keon Gray, through his attorney, filed the request Monday, citing an "unjust and improper verdict" in the case.


Gray was found guilty of second-degree murder earlier and six other charges this month in the shooting death of Taylor Hayes.

In the eight-page request, Gray's attorney argued the jury's verdict was "legally inconsistent" and said the defense was prevented from calling an assistant state's attorney as a witness.

Hayes was sitting in the backseat of a car when she was caught in a shootout. She died two weeks after being shot.
