Man charged in March 2018 shooting death of woman, 34
Detroit — A 46-year-old Detroit man has been denied bond as he faces murder and gun charges related to the March 2018 shooting death of a woman on the city's west side, records show.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Clayton Talley, 46, with first-degree premeditated murder and felony firearm in the death of Lakeyla Robinson, 34.
It was just after 3:05 a.m. on March 18, 2018, when the victim was shot on the 6000 block of West Outer Drive, police said at the time. She drove herself to the hospital afterward, but, according to the Wayne County medical examiner, died from the "contact gunshot wound to the chest."
Police said they were piecing together details, but did not immediately offer a description of the shooter. More than a year and a half later, police arrested Talley.
Talley was arraigned Monday at Detroit's 36th District Court, and denied bond by Magistrate Dawn White. He will remain at Wayne County Jail.
Talley is due back in court for a probable cause conference on Oct. 17 and a preliminary examination on Oct. 24, both before Judge Kenyetta Jones.
Talley has petitioned for a court-appointed attorney.
