2 Jail Inmates Charged In 2008 Slaying

CHICAGO (STMW) — Two men have been charged in the 2008 slaying of a 28-year-old man fatally shot in the head in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood.

Anthony Ward, 20, of the 2700 block of South California Avenue, and Devonta Guyton, 18, of the 16800 block of South Broadway Street in Crest Hill, were both charged with one count of first-degree murder. Both men are currently serving sentences at the Cook County Correctional Center for separate incidents.

About 12:29 a.m. on Aug. 2, 2008, the victim was allegedly confronted by Ward and Guyton in the 2100 block of South Pulaski Road, according to a police News Affairs release.

The men beat the victim around the head and shot him, according to the release.

The victim was reportedly dead on the scene with a gunshot wound to the head, according to police at the time.

Bond was set at $1 million for Ward, and Guyton was denied bond Friday in court, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s website. Both are next scheduled to appear in court May 17.

    Once again ignorant racists remarks by stupid trash!

    • A Saxon

      Keep your negative cry baby racist babble to your self.

  • Leroy Goldberg

    This is why we need the Death Penalty. Why should these 2 worthless pieces of $#!+ allowed to live in luxury on taxpayer money?


    Hey BUBBZ, if a black person says something negative about a white person, whether true or not, it’s called critical thinking, but if a white person says something wrong about a black person, whether it’s true or not, it’s called racism.Can you spell DOUBLE STANDARD.

    • Sam

      Excellent point Nizzer. I couldn’t have said it better.

  • Davidd

    By banning the death penalty the dimwitted Quinn hs opened the door on murder. The worst you can get now is a roof over your head 3 meals a day and a job. You wait and see this summer will most likely be one of the deadliest. Thanks Quinn for not thinking.

  • Just Asking

    who was the victim in this article? What was his name? Where did he live? Why were these facts omitted?Usually these facts are told in this kind of article.I think we can figure it out!!

    • Devon

      Who cares, it’s all about the two low life homie creepos.

  • Neev

    No matter my faults in life, at least I am not on the level of these two trash. Guarantee you their families are swearing up and down they are innocent. Newsflash for you, sons and daughter commit crimes too.

    • tasha

      Actually they arent not…stop speaking for people

      • tasha

        typo..are not

    • Jimbo

      Yes it is true, many black mothers are oblivious to the vicious misery their kid imposed on others, it’s pathetic.

  • loner

    My daughter came to visit and I told her not to tell anyone she is on the Honor Roll cause they’re dropping like flies in Chicago. haha

  • Cliff

    Good idea. Here we go again, two more black idiots to add to the statistics.

  • Krendall

    I really do hate what is going on in our inner city neighborhoods but for a person to call the accused two black dumb idiots that is racist we know what they did and I don’t condone that these two young men took someones life and they will pay the price to the law of man and the man upstairs which he did so they have a lifetime to think about what they did. As for racist remarks its all bs about double standards I know and most people know being black period is a strike against you and society now is just hiding behind as I call them brick walls its up to us to keep knocking them walls down and be appreciative of what we have .

    • A. Saxon

      First of all, these two are black, and extremely ugly. Second, they are idiots for commiting suce a vicious crime. Third, just because someone’s comment isn’t complimentary to the black community, doesn’t mean they are racist. And lastly, there is nothing about society holding the black man down. Go to school, study hard, work hard, and anyone can go to college and be successful. In many cases, the only thing that makes a comment racist, is someone playing the racist card as you have.

      • nique

        Im just trying to figure what their look s have to do with anything…

      • Gene

        They look like they will fit in nicely in prison.

      • LittleOldLady

        That’s funny, Mr. Saxon, the first thing I thought when I first saw these mugshots was how hideously ugly these two were.

  • ranman

    we allway’s want it to be a black thing so what’s new about life.I chicago.

  • Dan

    i loves me some black on black crime

  • Dan

    what i don’t understand is why blacks always try to rip off other blacks… the real problem is the welfare system. baby mama’s have the kids for the checks,and when the kid turns 17 the check is gone. baby mama tells kid get lost. kid joind gang,mama squirts out another one. same problem starts again…..

  • Nique

    Why does everything always have to be a race thing…but its ok for a whige idiot to kill an innocent 9 year old girl and injure a politician…smh

    • Nique

      I meant to say white idiot

      • Dan

        hey your right there are a lot of white trash thats right up there with these 2 killers….

    • A. Saxon

      @Nique, What the hell does some old crime commited by a white person, have to do with black Africans killing? That is so typical, blacks are bustin caps every single day. You just can’t compare that to any other race. That is why so many people call you on it. You, meaning blacks.

      • nique

        and your point was????

      • Gregg

        @nique, Are you dumb or something? I got it.

  • Dan

    the welfare system was created for a vote….

  • Dan

    hey the same thing happends with white trash too. they get on the system for the check,and bingo more white trash…..

  • Dan

    the way i see it,if you kill,rape,rob,kidnap,hit and run, you should be sot dead… no matter what color you are.

  • Dan

    sorry shot….

  • Leroy Goldberg

    Mohammed when you say the Mother should have found a better mate to reproduce with I am sure she tried. I have no doubt that she had unprotected sex with dozens of men and most likely doesn’t even know who the real father is.

    • Deathtoignorance

      And where is your father hmmmmm…i bet u not even a good father to your kids

    • Jack

      HaHaHaHaHa, ain’t that the truth.

  • Anglo-Saxon

    What are you talking about? Louis Farrakhan is nothing more than a racist criminal. He hates white people and anything about them. He preaches hatred and condones violence. The last thing the black community needs is someone to incite even more violence. Young black men are violent enough. What you need is someone who never plays the racist card, and consistantly calls on a stop to the killing.

  • T. Black

    Look at these two ugly mugs everyone. This is what your worst nightmare looks like. If you ever encounter the likes of these two, either run or start shooting.

  • Dizzyblond

    The saddest part is…..when this great life is over you racists will be judged right along with the criminals in this post, so u better dig in the deepest part of your moral character to seek forgiveness because our God is watching you..every thought, every action, every racist morsel of your being will be judged…be careful ladies and gentleman. God knows who u are, smh ;(
