The State of Florida is reportedly seeking the death penalty for YNW Melly after he allegedly killed two members of his fellow YNW crew last October.
The State is confident it can “prove beyond a reasonable doubt” Melly murdered both men — YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy — for financial gain and according to legal docs, the State say Melly committed homicide in a “cold, calculated and premeditated manner.” Officials also believe Melly is a criminal gang member. Melly was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in February. He pleaded not guilty last month.
Florida is one of 30 states that still allow capital punishment.
