YNW Melly just got out of jail for marijuana-related charges, but now he’s back behind bars for a double homicide.
Miramar Police report that Melly (real name Jamell Demons) and his alleged accomplice Corlten Henry are in custody and have been charged with two counts of first degree murder. The men are accused of shooting and killing Anthony Williams (YNW Sakchaser) and Christopher Thomas Jr. (YNW Juvy) on October 26th, 2018. They are also being investigated for tampering with a crime scene to make it look like a drive-by shooting. Williams and Thomas Jr. were rushed to a Miramar hospital the night of the incident riddled with bullet wounds where they were both pronounced dead.
YNW Melly released We All Shine last month containing the instant hit “Mixed Personalities” featuring Kanye West, which currently has over 17 million views on YouTube. He more recently delivered footage complimenting “Gang (First Day Out)” and announced his album’s supportive tour with Asian Doll.
