Timothy Eugene Moore and Shandon Ray Groom Wiki – Timothy Eugene Moore and Shandon Ray Groom Biography

The two men Timothy Eugene Moore and Shandon Ray Groom accused of breaking into the wrong side of a Michigan duplex and murdering the resident have pleaded guilty to the fatal attack. Timothy Eugene Moore, 37, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder and one firearms charge, records show. Authorities previously said he pulled the trigger and killed Egypt Covington, a singer and account manager, while she was tied up in Christmas lights at her Wayne County duplex in late June 2017.

Shandon Ray Groom, 30, who broke into the residence with Moore, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on July 14. Sentencing is scheduled for October 5 in both cases. A third defendant, Shane Evans, 34, has already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced in May to 15 to 25 years in prison with credit for 869 served days. He had agreed to testify against Moore and Groom. There could be a fourth suspect, but investigators aren’t sure, and even if there is, this person is dead.

Detectives will do what they can to make sure we have everything ready to close this complaint.”

Authorities said Evans worked at the Covington compound. He knew his neighbor and also knew that this particular individual kept marijuana at home. On top of that, this person was going to be out of town, so Evans planned to steal the drugs when the residence was empty.

Evans, Groom and Moore drove there together, prosecutors said. Evans pointed out which door to the duplex to enter and hung back. However, Groom and Moore entered the wrong door and barged into Covington while she was watching a movie. They tied her up with Christmas lights. Moore then shot her in the head while she lay helpless.


“I hurt all of you and I am so sorry about what happened,” Evans told Covington’s family in court, according to The Detroit News. “I don’t know what to say. I pray for your forgiveness, but I understand if you don’t forgive me, but I’m very sorry.” Covington’s father, Chuck Covington, characterized the guilty plea as selfish. “That plea deal was just for him,” he said. Evans “deserves nothing less than the maximum sentence allowed for my daughter, for my family,” he said.Read More……
