Florida rapper YNW Melly is going back to jail after being arrested and charged in the double murder of two of his friends.
The Miramar Police Department announced Wednesday Melly — real name Jamell Demons — and YNW Bortlen — real name Cortlen Henry have each been charged with two counts of first degree murder. According to cops, Demons and Henry were involved in the killings of two men in October.
Police say after their investigation, it was determined Demons shot the men and then he and Henry staged the crime scene to look like a drive-by shooting. This determination was made after forensic evidence linked the two men to the crime.
Melly took to his Instagram just before turning himself in to police, saying, “To all my fans and supporters … I want you guys to know I love you and appreciate every single one of y’all, a couple months ago I lost my two brothers by violence and now the system want to find justice.. unfortunately a lot of rumors and lies are being said but no worries god is with me.”
YNW Melly just released a new album We All Shine, with a feature from Kanye West.
