YNW Melly’s murder trial: Jury selection begins for rapper

Jury selection started in the murder trial against up-and-coming rapper YNW Melly.

Jury selection is expected to be a lengthy process in this case because Melly faces the death penalty if convicted. Last week, a judge ruled in favor of the state after they filed a motion that would allow a death sentence if a jury voted 8-4 in favor of the death penalty. The new law was created after the Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, avoided the death penalty due to a split-jury.

The Law&Crime Network plans to stream YNW Melly’s murder trial live once opening statements are scheduled.
