It looks like YNW Melly’s fans are as happy as a child on Christmas day. The 23-year-old rapper whose real name is Jamell Maurice Demons has been locked up for a while now and was facing the death penalty for his accused murders. Melly has always said he’s innocent and did not murder his two friends.
According to XXL, a Florida judge has decided to remove the death penalty that Melly was originally facing. Melly and his family got the good news on Wednesday during his preliminary hearing, which was in Broward County.
“I’m literally crying real tears,” Jamie Demons-King wrote. “You coming home son.”
Melly addressed his arrest in a deleted Instagram post in 2019, saying “To all my fans and supporters, no I did not get locked up in Washington, but I am turning myself in today” he wrote. “I want you guys to know I love you and appreciate every single one of y’all, a couple of months ago I lost my two brothers by violence and now the system wants to find justice. Unfortunately, a lot of rumors and lies are being said, but no worries. God is with me and my firstname.lastname@example.org and we want y’all to remember it’s a ynw Family I love you @ynwsakchaser1 and @ynwjuvy #freeus.”
