Man sentenced to 80 years for murder in Rosedale
Telly Williams, 32, was sentenced to 80 years for the murder of a man in Rosedale, the Baltimore County State’s Attorney announced on Tuesday, February 7.
On January 25, 2015 Telly Williams and two others entered a room at the Regal Inn on Pulaski Highway in Rosedale. At that time, Williams produced a handgun to rob Aaron Burrell during a targeted attack. Williams and his associates tied up Burrell and another victim. Burrell’s hands and feet were tied together and some of his clothing was removed. After the robbery was completed, Williams then approached Burrell and shot him at close range into his forehead. He later died as a result of the gunshot after being transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Williams had pleaded guilty to the charge of first-degree murder in April of 2016.
Williams’ one accomplice C’Auntay Diaquon Parnell, 23, also pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and will be sentenced in May. The second accomplice, Nathaniel A. McKnight, 35, will go to trail in April.
