The trial is anticipated to continue over the third week of June. In the event that he is found guilty of kἰlling his fellow rappers, Melly might be sentenced to deἀth.
Even though the jury hasn’t yet decided, trolls are spreading false information about the rapper’s demἰse after the trial which starts in a few weeks. And some of his supporters, who don’t seem to understand the law or how it applies to the case, believe he is already free while others wish it would happen soon.

Attorneys are Requesting the Deἀth Penalty:
After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis approved the bill allowing jurors to propose the deἀth penalty without a unanimous decision, Melly’s case would be one of the first to go on trial for the deἀth penἀlty.
When the jury decided to sentence the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gμnman to life in prἰson despite a 9 to 3 vote in support of the deἀth penἀlty earlier in May of this year, Ron signed the bill.
The modified law which likewise has the lowest bar for the deἀth penalty however allows for the execution of the defendant with as few as 8-4 votes. In the event of a split decision, the deἀth penἀlty may be applied to a crἰminal even if four of the jury’s twelve members decide against it.
Previously, the court’s decision to impose the deἀth penἀlty required unanimous consent. There is currently no evidence online that the rapper has already been given the deἀth penalty. There have been no formal announcements regarding such a result from either his family or the court.
