Just when Melly’s rap career was blowing up, not too long after dropping a hit with Kanye’, Melly’s luck has ran out! State of Florida prosecutors announced that they will in fact be seeking the death penalty in the double homicide case against Mel.
YNW Melly is being charged with two counts of first-degree murder after allegedly shooting two of his friends. After shooting them, he and Calten Henry staged the scene to make it appear as if there had been a drive by, even shooting up his own car. Melly and Henry then placed the bodies in the trunk and drove the two to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead.
According to TMZ, state documents advise that state prosecutors believe beyond a reasonable doubt that Melly murdered his friends in cold blood, over money. The documents also state, this incident was premeditated. Police allege Melly and Henry shot Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr. in the head, torso and back. The dynamic duo then shot up the car to make authorities believe they were involved in a drive-by.
Things do not seem to have worked out as planned for the young rapper.
