He did what now?!

YNW Melly was arrested some time ago as the lead suspect in the murder of two of his alleged best friends. According to reports, Melly and an associate shot Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr. in October. It is said that they then staged the scene to look like a drive-by shooting before dropping the victims off at the ER.

Newly released documents indicate that the State of Florida will now be seeking the death penalty against Melly, whose real name is Jamell Maurice Demons. It’s believed that the state now can prove that the murders were committed for financial gain and in a cold, calculated manner. It is also believed that Melly is a gang member.

We will keep you posted as the story develops.
