Troy stabbing victim laid to rest

ALBANY, N.Y. – Funeral services will be held Tuesday for Takim Smith, the 21-year-old father of three killed last week in Troy.

Services will be held Tuesday at the Wilborn Temple COGIC, at the corner of South Swan and Lancaster Street. 

Six suspects have been arrested in connection with his death:

  • Keyanna Bradley, 18
  • Unnamed 16-year-old female
  • Eric Mallard, 19
  • Ravenal Dunbar, 17
  • Keith Ferguson, 17
  • Ahziarh Carter, 16

Police believe the teens knew that Smith had just been awarded more than $60,000 in a medical settlement and, with intentions of robbing him, used the females to lure him to the apartment Monday night with a promise of sex as bait.

Once Smith was there, police believe that is when the robbery turned into a fatal stabbing.
