Her husband was killed because of a mask, police said. He called it ‘absurd’

Widow of security guard: That was 'senseless and stupid'

“He is filial, loving, kind, brave, brave, just committed,” he said. “He is just loved everywhere,” Munerlyn’s widow, Latryna Munerlyn, told Don Lemon to CNN late Tuesday.

The 43-year-old guard was shot in the head after telling a customer at the Family Dollar store to wear face masks – which have been mandated by the state for all retail employees and customers, police said. He died at the Flint hospital.

Bishop Ramonyea Travon, 23, Larry Edward Teague, 44, and Sharmel Lashe Teague, 45, have been charged with first-degree premeditated murder, along with other charges, the Genesee Regional Prosecutors’ Office said in a statement on Monday.

“That is absurd and stupid. And now my babies don’t have a father for the rest of their lives,” Latryna Munerlyn said.

The family has eight children, he said.

“My children are very, very strong,” he said. “They are strong, and I say that men instill something in them that cannot be taken by anyone. My baby is very strong. They have tried to overcome this and my baby boy said, ‘As long as he is with God he GOOD.'”

In a statement, Genesee District Attorney David Leyton said Munerlyn “only did his job” to uphold the governor’s order.

“My king always acts honorable,” said Munerlyn’s widow, “does he work there, work at a club, work at a restaurant, he’s a respectable person. Period. They can’t take that from him.”

“He has always been a respectable man.”

She said that even though her husband was gone, her inheritance would “go on and they couldn’t just leave.”
