XXXTentacion Trial Guilty Plea

One of the four men charged for the murder of rapper XXXTentacion has pleaded guilty and will be

There has been a new development in the murder trial for the deceased rapper XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy. One of the four men charged with shooting and killing the artist, Robert Allen, recently pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and has complied to testify against his co-defendants. The other men, Dedrick Williams, Trayvon Newsome, and Michael Boatwright, are all on trial for first-degree murder and robbery charges, with Boatwright singled-out by Allen as the one responsible for shooting Onfroy.

Allen claims that on the day of the robbery and shooting, he along with Boatwright and Newsome initially became hesitant to go through robbing Onfroy due to a fear of getting caught. Williams then asked the three if they were too afraid, compelling them to commit to the planned heist. Allen then stated that the masked men that could be seen in surveillance-footage of the shooting were Boatwright and Newsome, with the latter being the one who carried Onfroy's Louis Vuitton bag filled with thousands in cash away from the scene. Williams served as the getaway driver.

Allen already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and robbery in August 2022, while his co-defendants have yet to be sentenced. If convicted, each could serve life in prison for their crimes.
