According to reports, the Broward County court system is reportedly reviewing an audio recording of YNW Melly confessing to the double murder of his two friends, Christopher “YNW Juvy” Thomas Jr. and Anthony “YNW Sakchaser” Williams.

The 21-year-old rapper born has been in jail for nearly the last two years as he is accused of staging a drive-by shooting and killing his two friends, Juvy and Sakchaser. He reportedly drove around for a while with the bodies in the car before bringing them to the hospital.

Attorney Todd Baker, who is representing YNW Sakchaser Williams’ family, told Complex that, prior to the shooting, “tension began to develop between the once cohesive group of friends about how the money should be distributed. When there are less people splitting up the prospective money, the people on the receiving end will get more.”

Melly faces the death penalty if proven guilty.
