The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has denied the appeals of two men who were convicted of charges including murder, robbery and conspiracy in 2017… following a drug deal gone wrong that resulted in the death of another man… Ryan Mumaw. Malakye Boyd; Rakeem Newman; and Tayjuhn and Brady Fitzgerald met Dylan and Ryan Mumaw to purchase a pound of marijuana from the Mumaws. But instead of making the deal, two of the four buyers opened fire into the Mumaw vehicle. One bullet hit Ryan Mumaw in the chest. He did not survive. Malakye Boyd and Rakeem Newman are both serving life sentences without the possibility of parole. The brothers had filed separate appeals alleging their verdicts were incorrect.
