Martavius Tyus and Tarick Moore Plead Guilty to Felony Murder
Montgomery County, Ala. – Two Montgomery County men have pleaded guilty to helping plan and carry out a robbery that resulted in the death of 20-year-old Dundrell Young, who was ambushed while sitting in his car and shot multiple times.
Martavius Tyus and Tarick Moore both pleaded guilty this week before Fifteenth Circuit Judge James Anderson to one count each of felony murder. Tyus and Moore each face a sentence of 20 years to life in prison.
On September 27, 2015, Young was parked in the lot of the Burger King on East South Boulevard, when he was approached by an assailant. Young was robbed, then shot multiple times, killing him. The investigation revealed that Tyus and Moore participated in the planning of and carrying out the robbery.
Two other people, including the alleged shooter, remain charged in the case. Their trials are pending.
District Attorney Daryl Bailey said: “I am appreciative of the efforts of Deputy District Attorneys Michele Davidson and Scott Green of the Violent Crime Unit. I also want to thank Investigators J.P. Wilson and John Brown, and Montgomery Police Detective R.K. Dabney for their outstanding work.”
