Four men indicted over murder of XXXTentacion

A grand jury in Florida has officially indicted four men in relation to the murder of controversial rapper XXXTentacion – real name Jahseh Onfroy – who was shot dead last month.

Police believe the shooting occurred during a robbery gone wrong and as a result the four men face charges of first degree murder and armed robbery. The four accused are Michael Boatwright, Robert Allen, Trayvon Newsome and Dedrick Williams.

Investigators believe it was Boatwright who shot Onfroy. Williams drove the vehicle the four men used to flee the crime scene, though police say he claims he was not aware that the other three men were planning a robbery.

Court papers also revealed last week that Onfroy had $50,000 on his person at the time of the shooting. The money was in a Louis Vuitton bag seized by the robbers.
