Markas Fishburne sentenced to death for murder of Aisha Levy

  • PublishedJune 13, 2024

Fishburne was staying with Levy and her boyfriend on Dec. 20, 2019. When Levy’s boyfriend returned home, he found blood “all over” the apartment, a release from the State Attorney’s Office said.

Fishburne had left a note behind that said he and Levy were both dead and threatening that the boyfriend would be next.

Police found Levy’s body wrapped and concealed in a plastic storage bin in a closet. They were able to locate Fishburne, who was trying to escape on a Greyhound bus, and arrest him.

An investigation uncovered that Fishburne had taped Levy with her hands bound before he killed her.

He admitted that he bludgeoned Levy with a hammer, as well as strangling and stabbing her, as she was getting out of the shower. 

The jury voted 10-2 for Fishburne to receive the death penalty. 

In June 2022, Fishburne was sentenced to five years in prison for aggravated battery in detention facility. In that case, he cut his prison roommate’s neck with a razor blade strapped to a comb.
