When Big Kev was in little league, he was throwing 80 miles per hour. To me, he was relentless, like Ben Wallace out here. Big Kev brought [Porter Jr.] to the school a couple of times actually when he was younger, and I had met him."

First degree murder charges were brought against Kevin Porter Sr. in August 1993, just 15 months after Kevin Porter Jr.'s elder sister Keayanna was born. The primary witness said that while in the car, Bryan threatened to shoot the girl with the firearm before actually shooting and killing her.

Thankfully for Bryan, the witness revised her story, indicating that she had been pressured to make specific statements by the deceased girl's family. In her rewritten account, the child was travelling with Bryan when she asked to view his semiautomatic gun.


The gun was unfortunately loaded and primed when she touched it, so it discharged. And such was the tragic end of the young lady. The senior Kevin Porter admitted guilt and was sentenced to four and a half years in jail for the charges brought against him.
