    FLINT, Mich. – A man found guilty in the murders of two Flint women faces a mandatory sentence of life behind bars.

    Twenty-one-year-old Toron Fisher of Flint was convicted on one count each of first and second degree murder as well as two felony firearm counts.

    The charges stemmed from the shooting deaths of Sasha Bell and Sacorya Reed, both 19, in April of 2016 at Flint’s Ridgecrest Apartments.

    According to police, Fisher and his cousin Malek Thorton went to confront the women in retaliation for their perceived involvement in the robbery of Thornton a few months earlier.

    During that incident, the two women were shot to death and Bell’s 16-month-old son was left unattended with the deceased victims for almost two days before being discovered by Bell’s sister.

    Fisher faces a judge for sentencing in February.

    Thornton pleaded guilty to second degree murder and felony firearms charges in October, 2018.

    He will be sentenced Thursday.
