Prosecutors Will Retry Double Murder Case Against YNW Melly

After YNW Melly’s double murder case was declared a mistrial, the Broward County State Attorney’s office confirmed they will retry this case a second time.

“The hard part of a mistrial like this is the state has shown their cards, they’ve shown their strategy, they’re good facts and they’re bad facts,” Joshua Rydell, a local criminal defense attorney, told NBC6.

“That being said, so did the defense, they highlighted their strategy. So now both sides know the playbook that the other side is working with.”

He continued, “One courtroom was shut down for six to seven weeks of this trial, and coupled with the jury being sequestered, hotel stays, extra BSO security to make that happen.”

“If they try it again there will definitely be a cost to the taxpayers of Broward County,” Rydell added.

The state alleges YNW Melly shot and killed two childhood friends, Christopher Thomas Jr. and Anthony Williams, in October of 2018. The state argued Demons shot the men in a car and then staged a drive-by shooting to cover up the crime.

“We are somewhat disappointed that Melly is not walking out the door with us,” said Melly’s Defense Attorney Stuart Adelstein. “There is a lack of evidence, there is a conflict in the evidence, and the evidence itself and the investigation itself, stinks.”
