Family Dollar Murderers Sentenced to Life

Three people convicted of killing a Family Dollar security guard in Flint have been sentenced to life in prison.

In May of 2020, Calvin Munerlyn got into an altercation with Sharmel Teague after asking her daughter Brya to leave the store for not wearing a mask in the early months of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Later that day, Sharmel’s husband Larry and her son, Ramonyea Bishop visited the store, where Ramonyea shot Munerlyn in the head.

Bishop was sentenced to life in prison for first degree premeditated murder and felony firearm, while Sharmel and Larry Teague received the same sentence for aiding and abetting in the crime. Before the sentence was read, Larry Teague was removed from the court room for reportedly causing a disruption.

According to Michigan law, none of the three have the possibility of parole.
