YNW Melly denies prosecutor’s claim that he allowed his mother to hit
YNW Melly and her mother Jamie King have denied prosecutors’ allegations that he authorized a hit on her.
On Sunday, the rapper’s mother reacted to prosecutors’ claim that he authorized a hit on his mother. The No Jumper Instagram page shared a snippet of what appears to be a police witness interview sheet talking about the contents of YNW Melly’s phone from jail in her ongoing case.
In the document, prosecutors ask the question, “In your opinion, did Melly authorize a communication for the commission of a crime?”
The answer given is an affirmative yes, with damning assertions.
“Yeah. If you read his phone, there’s drug trafficking, gun violations, permission to kill his mother. Those are things you would consider allowing.
The prosecutor also asked if there was any physical evidence to back up the allegation and the answer was an affirmative yes from his phone, social media accounts, words, etc.
YNW Melly is on trial for the double murder of two of his friends, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. His trial is ongoing, with prosecutors saying he and his friend YNW Bortlen allegedly killed the two men and then staged it as a drive-by shooting.
So far in the trial, prosecutors have presented evidence claiming Melly was the shooter. They’re asking for the death penalty, but the rapper maintained he was innocent.
Meanwhile, the rapper’s Instagram account immediately reacted to the document with a strong denial.
On YNW Melly’s Instagram Stories, a message read, “LIES. FALSE CALENDAR. INNOCENT!!”
Melly’s brother, YNW BSlime, also reacted on Instagram. “It’s pure desperation,” he said with the cap emoji.
In the meantime, the prosecution is calling Detective Christopher Williams as an expert witness.
He is one of the main witnesses for the prosecution in the hopes that it is highly likely that Melly was the one who shot and killed his friends, and not the triggering defendant Cortlen Henry.
The expert’s main evidence is that the car’s blood splatter and other things when assessed at an angle prove that Melly was the shooter from inside the vehicle, specifically the back seat, behind the driver’s seat, and no more than eight inches from the victims head.
