JAMAICA — An Arverne man and his alleged Rosedale accomplice will be tried on murder charges after a Queens grand jury indicted them Tuesday on charges of killing a witness who had testified in an earlier robbery case, according to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
Shytique Kelly, of 440 Beach 58th St., was arrested May 30 and charged with allegedly gunning down 21-year-old Tysheen Coakley three days earlier at the intersection of 110th Avenue and 160th Street, Brown said. Coakley had testified against Kelly earlier, and Brown said Kelly had previously made a third-party threat to kill Coakley.
Kelly was charged with murder, attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, contempt and tampering with a witness, according to the DA.
Jazmine Guillebeaux, of 148-03 Huxley St., was charged with murder, criminal facilitation and hindering prosecution for allegedly driving Kelly to kill Coakley, Brown said.
The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 29.
