A homeless thug with a criminal record has been arrested in the cold-blooded murder of a 19-year-old cashier who was gunned down after handing him $100 during a robbery.
Winston Glynn, a 30-year-old Jamaican was charged with first-degree murder and robbery in the January 9 slaying of Kristal Bayron in a Burger King at East 116th Street and Lexington Avenue in Queens.
The monster shot her down as she crouched in terror by a second cash register which she tried to open to comply with his demand for more cash, but she didn’t have the key.
Glynn once worked at the same Burger King but did not know his victim. He lives at a Days Inn in Queens that has been turned into a homeless shelter.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, notoriously known for his soft-on-crime approach to law enforcement — including downgrading many felony charges and eliminating prison time for most crimes — was at Glynn’s arraignment, but made no comment.
NYPD detectives who nailed Glynn through painstaking police work hope he won’t go soft on this killer.
New York City’s new Mayor Eric Adams, who campaigned on a law-and-order platform, was moved when he visited Kristal’s mother after the slaying.
“When I visited her mother, I saw the pain on the face, how much this tore her apart,” he said, calling the suspect a “cold-blooded killer.”
Kristal worked the night shift at the East Harlem Burger King and told her mother before going to work that night that she was afraid because of all the homeless people who hang around the fast-food joint.
