XXXTentacion Trial Set To Begin This Week - WhatsOnRap

The trial for three of the four men charged with XXXTentacion's murder is expected to begin this week.

The murder trial of XXXTENTACION is scheduled to start this week, nearly five years upon his fatal armed robbery in June 2018.

According to NBC6, jury selection is still underway, but the trial will begin later this week. Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Devonshay Williams, and Trayvon Newsome, three of the four alleged co-defendants, will stand trial.

The fourth, Robert Allen, pled guilty to second-degree murder charges in August 2022 and is anticipated to testify against his co-conspirators in exchange for a reduced sentence.

“[Allen] pleaded guilty to a lesser included offense of second-degree murder and robbery with a firearm. He still faces a life sentence. Obviously, we are hoping for better than that. But his sentence is deferred and it is likely he will be called as a witness in the case against the other three co-defendants,” Allen’s attorney Jim Lewis explained.

“Mr. Allen’s role was much less than the other three involved. It was always kind of contemplated that the State was looking to use him as a witness in the case.”

The accused on trial may face life in jail if found guilty. Officials believe Boatwright was the aggressor who fatally shot XXXTENTACION in an armed robbery beyond the Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18, 2018. They made off with $50,000 in a Louis Vuitton bag from which X had just withdrawn.

Eventually after, the four co-defendants were arrested and charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm.

Drake, 6ix9ine, Joe Budden, Quavo, and others have been mentioned as potential witnesses in the Broward County murder trial.
