WARREN, MI – A 37-year-old Michigan man has been charged with the murder of a 6-year-old boy, the boy’s father, and the boy’s father’s girlfriend.

Nicholas Raad Bahri of Bloomfield Hills is accused of the “execution-style killing” of 6-year-old Tai’raz Moore and 28-year-old Isis Rimson at a home on Otis Street in Warren on Oct. 1.

Detroit police also found the body of 32-year-old Tukoyo Moore, Tai’raz’s father, in a torched car around the same time. Bahri is also charged with his murder.

After 6-year-old killed execution-style, Michigan police may ask feds to seek death penalty

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

Sole Witness Who Heard Cops Announce Themselves in Breonna Taylor Raid Changed His Story

This week, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron made the bombshell announcement that the cops who fatally shot Breonna Taylor would not be charged with killing her, calling their use of force in the March raid “justified to protect themselves.”In that justification, he said that one witness corroborated the three officers’ insistence that they knocked and identified themselves at Taylor’s Louisville home while executing a search warrant in connection with a narcotics investigation. It contradicted claims from Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenny Walker, and 11 other residents, who said they didn’t hear the cops announce themselves. Instead, Walker thought he was being burglarized and fired a warning shot that triggered a tragic chain of events.But, according to documents and audio obtained by VICE News on Saturday, that sole witness initially told investigators days after the March
