Prosecutors seek death penalty against rapper YNW Melly
Broward County, Fl- Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against rapper YNW Melly in the deaths of his two friends, who were aspiring rappers.
The Sun Sentinel reports that the Broward State Attorney’s Office filed intent to seek the death penalty. This happened last Thursday in a notice that also accuses the rapper of being a gang member.
YNW Melly’s real name is Jamell Demons. He’s accused of killing 21-year-old Anthony Williams of Fort Pierce and 19-year-old Christopher Thomas Jr. of Gifford back on Oct. 26 after leaving a recording studio in Fort Lauderdale. Demons’ 20-year-old friend Cortlen Henry is also charged with murder, but authorities believe Demons shot the pair.
