No Relief For Convicted Lancaster County Killer

/ WDAC

LANCASTER – A man sentenced to death for killing a hip-hop artist after a show in Columbia, Lancaster County, has been denied his latest request for relief. 29-year-old Jakeem Towles was seeking a re-trial over the May 2010 killing of 20-year-old Cornell “Young E-Z” Stewart outside a Columbia concert venue. Lancaster County Judge Howard Knisely issued his decision rejecting Towles’ claims that his “ineffective” lawyers caused an improper guilty verdict to first-degree murder and death sentence in 2012. On May 7, 2010, Towles opened fire on a group of people outside the North Fourth Street venue after Towles was ejected from the show for causing a fight.
