YNW Melly’s Double Murder Charges  

YNW Melly allegedly shot YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy while all three men were in the same car.  

It was in 2018 when YNW Melly was charged with murdering his friends who were disclosed as YNM Juvy and YNW Sakchaser.   

YNW Melly was left off the hook as prosecutors were unable to prove the rapper’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to the jury.  

It was in 2019 then that YNW Melly was arrested but pleaded not guilty to his first-degree murder charges.  

In October, a second trial will be held for YNW Bortlen, who is accused of helping to commit the murder.  

Since his arrest in 2019, YNW Melly has remained behind bars. His retrial has not been given a set date.  

YNW Melly’s manager, 100k Track, expressed optimism after the decision came out.
