The verdict in the XXXTentacion case has found three suspects guilty of first-degree murder.
The verdict in the case of artist XXXTentacion has been delivered, with the three suspects – Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams, and Trayvon Newsome – being found guilty of first-degree murder.
The charges relate to the 2018 shooting and robbery of the rapper. The verdict brings a sense of closure to the case, but also highlights the ongoing issue of violence in the music industry.
During the trial related to the June 2018 armed robbery and killing of rapper XXXTentacion, the fourth accused, Robert Allen, took the stand and testified against his accomplices.
Allen, who had already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and robbery with a firearm prior to the trial, gave a reluctant but complete confession that provided details about the events leading up to the shooting of Jahseh Onfroy.
In his testimony, Allen implicated the other three defendants, alleging that they were involved in the planning and execution of the robbery, while he himself remained in the car.
