Three men are presently facing trial over the purported robbery and murder of the renowned hip-hop sensation, Xxxtenacion. Recently, a significant revelation emerged from the defense attorneys, making headlines.
According to Media Take Out, the defense for the three suspects is proposing an astonishing claim: they assert that the rapper was not killed by their clients, but rather by individuals allegedly hired by Drake.
Rapper’s Murder Trial: Surprise Tactic
The ages of Michael Boatwright, 28, Dedrick Williams, 26, and Trayvon Newsome, 24, are all charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.. They stand accused of the 2018 armed robbery and killing of rapper XXXTentacion, known by his real name Jahseh Onfroy, in Florida.
Another defendant, Robert Allen, reached a plea deal for a second-degree murder charge and is expected to testify against his associates.
Initially, the case appeared quite straightforward. Media Take Out verified that prosecutors possessed the testimony of an informant, and they had also discovered the murder weapon in the defendants’ residence.
However, the defense had a surprise tactic ready to present.
Drake Deposition Request Shakes Trial
Right before the commencement of the opening statements, Dedrick Williams’ defense attorney made a motion requesting the court to order Canadian rapper Drake to undergo a deposition for the trial.
Speculations from Media Take Out suggest that the defendants may be aiming to cast doubt on their involvement in XXXTentacion’s death by questioning Drake about his past conflict with the late rapper in 2018, and potentially implying that Drake was somehow responsible.
Dedrick’s attorney informed the court that both Drake and his legal team had not responded to the defendants’ requests for a Zoom deposition.
With no objections from the prosecution, the judge granted the attorney the authority to issue a “rule of show cause,” effectively serving Drake with a subpoena.
The compliance of Drake with the request remains uncertain, and it is also unclear whether the judge will permit his testimony during the trial.
Undoubtedly, this case is taking an unexpected and intense turn.
