Taxstone Manslaughter Sentencing Delayed

Tiffany Brockworth |

A court has pushed Taxstone’s sentencing date from April 19 to May 25.

New York podcaster Taxstone was found guilty in connection with the 2016 shooting death of Troy Ave’s bodyguard, Ronald “Banga” McPhatter. Banga was shot dead at a Manhattan concert venue Irving Plaza just before rapper T.I. was scheduled to perform. Taxstone, real name Daryl Campbell, was convicted Thursday on manslaughter, assault and weapon possession charges.

Troy Ave testified against Taxstone and said he was forced to shoot on that fateful night.

District Attorney Alvin Bragg issued the following statement after the verdict was handed down.

“Daryl Campbell was convicted of killing a man and shooting three others during a tragic and deadly confrontation in a packed New York City music venue. In addition to seriously injuring his rival and killing his rival’s bodyguard, Mr. Campbell shot innocent bystanders and put hundreds of other lives at risk. We will vigorously prosecute anyone who commits this type of deadly violence.”
