WARREN, MI — Police say a 6-year-old boy was killed execution-style during a double homicide at a home in Warren Thursday, and if the suspect is found, they may seek the death penalty through federal assistance. Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer made the announcement during a press conference Friday.
“If we bring the federal authorities in, we may be asking for the death penalty for the person or persons responsible. I’m not saying we are at this point,” Dwyer said.
The death penalty has been outlawed in Michigan since 1963. However, if the case moves to a federal level, it would open the door for a possible death penalty sentence.
“When you murder a 6-year-old innocent baby, the person or persons responsible deserve the death penalty,” Dwyer said.
The boy has been identified as Tai’raz Moore. He was found in the home in the 2000 block of Otis Avenue near
