No verdict yet in trial of XXXTentacion’s accused killers
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Jury deliberations in the trial of three men accused of murdering rising rap star XXXTentacion will be entering a third day. The 12-member Florida panel deliberated for about five hours Thursday without reaching a verdict. They had deliberated for an hour Wednesday after getting the case late in the day. Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome are charged with first-degree murder and face mandatory life sentences if convicted. Prosecutors say they ambushed the singer outside a suburban Fort Lauderdale motorcycle dealership in June 2018, shooting him while robbing him of $50,000. A fourth alleged co-conspirator testified against them. The men’s attorney say the man was lying.
