The State of Florida is going for the death penalty for rapper YNW Melly who has been charged with the death of his two friends back in October.
Cops say Melly and his friend, Cortlen Henry, shot the two victims in the head, back and torso and then staged it to look like a drive-by shooting. Henry then dropped the victims off at the ER where they were pronounced dead.
The State believes it can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Melly killed his friends for financial gain and he committed the homicide in a cold, calculate and premeditated manner. They also believe he is a criminal gang member.
