The man accused of killing the brothers of Toya Wright — Ryan “Rudy” Johnson and Joshua Johnson — has officially been convicted, and the court has handed down a life sentence to him.
The incident initially took place in the middle of 2016, when an argument broke out and led to a physical altercation, culminating in the deaths of the two men.
Several witnesses have testified that they had seen the accused killer — Antoine Edwards — at the scene of the crime shortly after the two brothers were killed.
One of the witnesses even claimed that Edwards had confessed to the killings on the spot.
The defense for Edwards was mostly focused on attempting to destroy the credibility of the witnesses testifying on the case, accusing them of being paid to testify.
The lawyer even accused one person of being a drug addict and a liar. However, his harsh approach seems to have backfired, as the court was not sympathetic to his client’s case in the slightest.
It looks like Wright can finally get some peace after the tragic loss of her brothers. The reality TV star has been very open about her grief over the situation and has not tried to hide her sadness and anger at the person who took her brothers away from her.
And while the conviction is not going to bring her brothers back, it should at least give her some reassurance that the man responsible is going to rot in prison for the rest of his life.
Reginae Carter and Reign Rushing’s mother reacted to the news by posting prayer hands.
One fan said: “So happy for ur family. May ur brothers rest well & u find peace.”
Another commenter stated: “Such a horrible tragedy Toya. My heart goes out to you & your family. 🙏 Sending you love. Gratitude that justice is served.”

A fourth follower revealed: “So happy your family got Justice!🙏🏾Better late than never… I hope this gave you some comfort.”
Toya, who has built a strong brand and has a nice family, might now be able to focus on more positive things.
