FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - A Tarrant County rapper is now facing up to 99 years in prison.

Taymor McIntyre, also known as 'Tay-K 47' was found guilty of murder and robbery this morning and now faces between five and 99 years in prison. The sentencing phase of the trial began immediately following the verdict.

McIntyre was found not guilty of the more serious charge of capital murder, which would have carried a mandatory 40-year sentence.

McIntyre was accused of participating in a home invasion and robbery in Mansfield in July 2016. During the robbery a 21-year-old was killed.

McIntyre was the focus of a nationwide manhunt when a judge released him on home confinement and he cut off his ankle monitor and ran.

While on the run, prosecutors say he killed a San Antonio photographer and robbed and beat an Arlington man in a park
