Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Bariki Smith’s older brother Troy Seales has been found guilty of murder. RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusive details on the sentencing.

A jury found Seales, 30, guilty of the murder of Deandre Adams on April 7.

According to Newsgetter, Adams was shot multiple times while driving his car in Oakland, California on August 25, 2017. He died at Highland Hospital.

Seales was arrested on September 12. He was also charged with two counts of great bodily injury, which he denied, and one count of shooting at inhabited dwelling, which he pled not guilty to.

Radar can reveal he will be sentenced on May 4, 2018 at 9am.

Ashley Jones’ baby daddy expressed his outrage over the verdict.

“I have an older brother named Troy Marshall Seales, who today was cheated out of the rest of his life,” the Instagram post read. “He has been fighting a murder charge since September of 2017, he has been in trial for this murder charge for the last 2 weeks, he was completely snatched of all opportunity at having a second chance at life, a innocent man should be given the same equal opportunities as everyone else in this world. In this trial literally everything bad has happened from horrible lawyer representation to jurors (who decided whether he was guilty or not), falling asleep in mid trial.”

He continued, “I know my older brother and I know he is an amazing, loving, kind-hearted person no matter what background he has. Yes he doesn’t have the best criminal background and he has done time and openly admitted to his faults, but one thing he has NEVER been is violent, and with MURDER to be something someone actually committed, they would’ve had to be a violent person. TROY SEALES wouldn’t hurt a fly, he would literally give the clothes off of his back if need be.”

But the post forced his mother Shenandoah Williams, who has a major storyline on the show because of her feud with Smith’s baby mama, to slam him over Instagram.

“Bar crying they took his brother,” she wrote. “You didn’t even sit through his trial or put up one dime for lawyer. You just got a storyline minutes after the verdict. I lost two sons but my 1st born, we will fix this. I won’t stop until justice is served. A sleeping juror cannot decide anyone’s fate.”

Williams later explained that she reached out to Smith, but that she was “still blocked.”
