Ayesha Talat stabbed: Man charged with murder cleared 7 years late in Harris County court

HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — It was Mother’s Day 2015 when 23-year-old Ayesha Talat’s family had not heard from her.

Her father and sister Maysha Talat, who lived nearby, went to an apartment in northwest Harris County to check on Ayesha.

Maysha, who was 17 at the time, found her big sister dead in her bedroom.

“As soon as I open the bedroom door, her body blocks her, her lifeless body. I open the door. I turn her over and find that she is lifeless. And that’s when her roommate and I called the police,” Maysha said.

Ayesha was a young mother working at Aveda school to become a beautician.

Her sister said she was killed just a week before she graduated.

Harris County Sheriff’s Department investigators surrounded the apartment complex on Block 13330 of West Road in Houston for two days.

Investigators said Ayesha was killed with a knife.

Within a month, the Harris Co. Sheriff’s Office arrested a neighbor, Kyankun Ohns Nyemah, and charged him with murder.

“They lived in the same apartments and he was always making advances to her and she was always locking him up and it was like that for months,” Maysha said.

The grief her family felt was somewhat comforted by the swift arrest, but that was more than seven years ago.

As of Monday, the suspect has still not been brought to justice.

“It’s been a really, really difficult journey as this happened in 2015. We are now in 2022 and the process has been reset countless times,” Maysha said.

The Harris County Attorney’s Office responded to her anger by saying, “We share the family’s frustration and desire for justice. We look forward to presenting our evidence to a Harris County jury. Ultimately, it is the courts, not the prosecutors, who set the trial dates. “

ABC13 contacted the 179th Circuit Court where the case is taking place. We are waiting for an answer.

To add to their agony, court records show the suspect was granted bail twice during the seven-year delay and broke bail conditions at least four times.

He is currently roaming free.

“As young women, we are not safe when violent criminals get a slap on the wrist and are allowed to live their lives while my sister is two meters underground,” Maysha said.

To honor her big sister’s legacy, she graduated from cosmetology school two years ago.

“After falling into a deep, dark depression as I pulled myself out of it, I went back to continue what she couldn’t finish,” she said. “I opened a shop in her honor.”

Maysha said that running the Montrose Skin Club keeps her focused on fighting for Ayesha’s justice.
