ROMULUS, Mich. – One of two suspects has been formally charged with the murder of Egypt Covington.
According to authorities, Timothy Eugene Moore, a 34-year-old man from Toledo, was arraigned Sunday afternoon on one count of homicide at the 34th District Court in Romulus.
Covington’s family said they think Moore shouldn’t have even been on the streets back in 2017, when that murder happened. Moore is facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder.
Covington’s brother, D’Wayne Turner, said he’s never heard of his sister’s accused killer and he doesn’t recognize his face.
The Local 4 Defenders uncovered that Moore has a long criminal record in Michigan. He has a history of drug dealing, gun crimes, and breaking and entering.
Moore faced a felony charge before Covington was murdered.
