Winston Glynn Wikipedia – Winston Glynn Bio
Winston Glynn was charged with the “cold-blooded” murder of a 19-year-old Burger King employee who blew up in court, repeatedly screaming “Liar!” at the judge during his arraignment Friday night.
Glynn was ordered held without bail on charges of first-degree murder and robbery in the Jan. 9 killing of Kristal Bayron-Nieves, who was shot dead during her shift at the fast-food joint on East 116th Street and Lexington Avenue.
He is 30 years old.
Kristal Bayron-Nieves Murder
The armed robber entered the restaurant at 116th Street and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem around 1 a.m. and pistol-whipped a male customer before punching a female manager in the face, police said.
Tragic cashier Kristal Bayron-Nieves, 19, gave the robber cash from the drawer, an eyewitness said, according to her mother. The witness said that the criminal then turned to leave but whipped around again and shot Bayron-Nieves in the torso.
The victim’s family said the killer got away with just $100.
The teenager was taken to Metropolitan Hospital, pronounced dead a short time later, cops said.
Winston Glynn Arrested
The alleged gunman had multiple outbursts during his first appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court, yelling at Judge Jay Weiner while being escorted out of the courtroom, as his Legal Aid attorney apologized.
“Liar! You didn’t see the judge liar?” the suspect ranted.
The brief hearing was attended by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who did not comment.
Assistant District Attorney Dafna Yoran requested that Glynn be remanded into custody, citing the seriousness of the charges, the fact that he does not have a “stable address,” and his connections to Florida and Jamaica.
“He intentionally killed a 19-year-old Burger King employee in a premeditated gunpoint robbery… He also pistol-whipped two others, who were present – including a 60-year-old female manager,” Yoran said.
Glynn’s next court date was set for Jan. 19.
He was busted earlier Friday at an address in Brooklyn, “where detectives recovered items of clothing worn by the killer he tried to dispose of,” Yoran said.
Police said they tracked him down by reviewing “extensive” video footage that captured him carrying a distinctive backpack and white earbuds.
Investigators could also trace Glynn to a Manhattan store where he used an EBT card for purchase before the slaying, police officials said.
