YNW Melly's ex-girlfriend, Mariah Hamilton, is set to provide a deposition in the rapper's ongoing murder trial as reported. YNW Melly is currently facing two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of his friends YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser, whom he is accused of killing.
Hamilton, who had reportedly received a phone call from Melly after the murders, has not previously spoken on the record about the case. The deposition is scheduled for May 5 and will not be conducted in front of a judge or jury.
During a deposition, attorneys for each party are present and can ask questions related to the case, with little objection from the witness.
The information gathered during the deposition will be assessed by both sides to determine whether it can be used in the trial. YNW Melly's trial began last month, over four years after he was charged with murder.
YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser were dropped off at a hospital in Florida on the night of their deaths, with YNW affiliate YNW Bortlen claiming they were victims of a drive-by shooting. However, police believe that Melly actually shot the men inside the car and then fabricated the drive-by story.
The trial has been ongoing for over four years, and Melly is facing two counts of first-degree murder. The case has generated a lot of buzz in the hip-hop community, as Melly was an up-and-coming rapper with a growing fan base before his arrest. He is known for tracks like "Murder on My Mind" and "Mixed Personalities" featuring Kanye West.
The murders allegedly occurred in Florida, where Melly and his friends were dropped off at a hospital by YNW affiliate YNW Bortlen, who claimed that they were victims of a drive-by shooting. However, police believe that Melly was actually the triggerman and shot both men inside the car. Melly has maintained his innocence throughout the trial.
The deposition of Melly's former girlfriend is a significant development in the case, and it remains to be seen how it will affect the outcome of the trial. The hip-hop community continues to follow the case closely, as it touches on important themes of violence and loyalty within the industry.
