DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Three people are officially charged by a grand jury for the murder of Sincere Tyson.
Tyson’s mother Lerwanna McClinden is speaking out as she just wants accountability for the people accused of killing her son.
Sincere Tyson was shot and killed while sleeping in his Abbey-Oaks apartment in October of 2021.
McClinden says that Tyson had just gone to his niece’s birthday and gone home to take a nap.
“She saw his picture the other day and said, ‘Nay-nay, Uncle Bubba still in heaven.’ I said yeah he is still in heaven. She said, ‘Mommy and daddy said if I am a good person then I will see him in heaven.’ I said you sure will,” McClinden said.
Tyson was then supposed to take a trip to Montgomery with some friends.
Then 59 days after his alleged murder, authorities arrested Solomon Cooper the first of three suspects.
Then Zycheria Russ was arrested, who does not show up in court records and McClinden says she is trying to obtain youthful offender status on the case.
The final suspect has not been named but McClinden says that the u-s marshals are searching for them.
All three have been indicted by a grand jury.
“The last day my son was alive,” McClinden said. “He kept on talking about accountability. He is never serious. He kept saying ‘Everybody needs to be accountable for their actions.’ the things they did is on them. It’s not on their mother, it’s not on their upbringing. They made that choice and they need to be held accountable and I want all of them to be held accountable for what they did to my son.”
Cooper, Russ, and the other unnamed suspect are also accused of taking money from Tyson.
“They are trying to say a lot of his pictures on Facebook. He was taking pictures that had money in them,” McClinden said. “It wasn’t his money because he was broke. Poor thing was taken owing me 59 dollars.”
McClinden says that Tyson would wake up at 6 a.m. every morning to go and work at McLane Company, which made a plaque for the family of Sincere Tyson.
“It’s still hard to fathom because he didn’t do anything to deserve that,” McClinden said. “He was a good kid. A really good kid. He loved everybody and wanted to see everyone smiling, but they took that from us. He didn’t just die he was taken.”
Zycheria Russ’ youthful offender application hearing is scheduled for March.
Solomon cooper’s jury trial is set to begin on May 8th.
