Rochester, N.Y. – A jury has convicted a Rochester man of second degree murder and kidnapping in connection with a 2017 homicide.

Tyshon Myles, 26, was also convicted of burglary, robbery and tampering with physical evidence. Prosecutors say he and others caused Moran Wilson’s death during the course of a kidnapping.

Two others, Genisis Colon and Alvin Hancock, were convicted on charges relating to the case earlier this year.

Myles and the other defendants caused Wilson’s death in the midst of kidnapping him on May 12, 2017. His body was found the next day, buried behind a home on Dayton Street.

Myles faces up to 25 years to life in prison for the murder charge, 25 years for the burglary and robbery charges and one-and-a-third to four years for the tampering charge when he is sentenced later this month.

In a statement released Thursday, Assistant District Attorney David Dys said, “Tyshon Myles intentionally and heinously took the life of Moran Wilson. We hope this conviction will bring a sense of justice and closure to Moran’s suffering family. This conviction would not have been possible without the thorough investigative work of the Rochester Police Department.”
