YNW Melly Won’t Be Free Just Yet As Judge Denies Mistrial Request

The YNW Melly trial almost took a drastic turn after his defense attorney, David A. Howard, has pushed for a mistrial in the rapper’s double-murder case.

We previously reported that the judge is currently considering the motion, which was made after the fourth day of court proceedings.

Well, according to reports reaching us at Dreddsworld, Judge has denied Melly’s request for mistrial, meaning he won’t be free just yet.

During Holmes’ testimony, the mother of YNW Melly’s former girlfriend claimed the prosecution ruined her life and intimidated her into taking the stand, leading presiding Judge John Murphy III to label her a “hostile witness.”

Despite being a prosecution witness with knowledge of the crime through her daughter, the jury saw an Instagram message from Holmes where she expressed frustration about false promises given to her by YNW Melly’s camp and discussed cooperating with authorities in the case.

Following Felicia Holmes‘ testimony, YNW Melly’s defense accused the prosecution of going against a court ruling and having Holmes read out-of-court statements.

Howard called the day’s hearing a “prejudicial fiasco” and requested a mistrial.
