Lincoln man to spend life behind bars for 2018 murder

DOVER, Del. – A Lincoln man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of murdering a Smyrna man.

In May 2018, 20-year-old Ahmir Bailey and 19-year-old Eugene Riley allegedly got into an argument with Jameir Vann-Robinson as they were leaving a house party on Mitscher Road in Dover. During the argument, several shots were fired by Bailey, one of which fatally hit Vann-Robinson.

Police say the bullets used in the incident were stolen from a sporting goods store a few days prior.

Bailey was convicted of first degree murder, attempted first degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, shoplifting, and conspiracy third degree. A Superior Court judge also found Bailey guilty of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and possession of ammunition by a person prohibited.

Riley is scheduled to go to trial in December.
