YNW Melly's Defense Attorneys Attempt to Keep the Mother of a Victim from Testifying

While prosecutors from the State of Florida looked to have the mother of victim YNW Juvy, born Christopher Thomas, identify her slain son on the stand, YNW Melly's defense attorneys attempted to block her from testifying.

As the trial's jurors were temporarily removed from the courtroom, the defense argued that YNW Juvy's mother being allowed to testify could potentially have an undue impact on the jury. After hearing arguments from both sides, Judge John J. Murphy III decided to delay a ruling on whether or not Juvy's mom can testify until he can thoroughly look into the state's case law as it pertains to the matter.

What Happens to YNW Melly If He is Convicted of First-Degree Murder?

While YNW Melly's trial is expected to last for the next few weeks, Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty if the "Suicidal" rhymer is found guilty of killing YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser. Despite a potential sentence to death row having been previously dropped back in 2022, the motion was proposed again and approved following a new Florida statute in which all 12 members of a jury no longer have to come to a unanimous decision regarding the death penalty. The new statute allows for a death sentence to be recommended with an eight to four vote.
