As he rode off, Rameau was shot in the back by Robert Earl Gee, a habitual offender.
After Gee was convicted of First-Degree Murder, he turned to Rameau's family and said, "I'm sorry about y' all loss, but I didn't done s---."
Yesterday the thug who stole the car was also charged with murder. Authorities say Dashawn (or Deshawn) Andrew Boylan, 27, was charged because his actions led to the death of Rameau.
The murder occurred in June, 2014.

The man whose car theft allegedly led to another man's fatal shooting of motorcyclist Jacob Marc Rameau has been charged with Rameau's murder.
Dashawn (or Deshawn) Andrew Boylan
Dashawn (or Deshawn) Andrew Boylan, 27, was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, Dec. 29, on a charge of open murder and being a third-time habitual offender. Because Boylan is already a resident of Chippewa Correctional Facility serving a prison sentence for vehicle theft, the arraignment was to be on video.
Boylan is being charged on a "felony murder" theory – murder during the commission of a felony – according to Chief Trial Attorney Matt J. Roberts of the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office. That means he's accused of being part of Rameau's murder because his car theft, a felony, allegedly led to it.
Roberts did not comment on why Boylan is being charged now.
Robert Earl Gee was convicted of Rameau's first-degree murder after a bench trial in February 2015. He's serving a sentence of life without parole. Gee has appealed that conviction.
Boylan earlier pleaded no contest to unlawfully driving away an automobile as a third-time offender. He was sentenced in December 2014 to prison for three years and two months to 10 years.
The night of June 25-26, 2014, Boylan stole a 1991 Dodge Dynasty owned by Christopher Hotz, Jacob Rameau's brother.
