BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–A judge, not a jury, will decide the fate of a man accused of killing a toddler, and the child’s grandmother.
Kenyatta Austin waived his right to a jury trial. He’s charged with murder.
Prosecutors say he shot 17-month-old Kyrie Johnson and 54-year-old Yvette Johnson.
This happened in Buffalo’s Fruit Belt in July of 2018.
Police say Austin also shot two men that night, but both survived.
