The family of Anthony Williams, one of the alleged murder victims of rapper YNW Melly has revealed that they are supportive of the rapper facing the death penalty if convicted.

According to TMZ, the lawyers of the Williams family, Steinger, Greene & Feiner told them - "If the state of Florida feels the death penalty is warranted in this case then we 100% fully support it," adding that "YNW Melly should feel the exact fear and panic he so viciously and consciously brought upon his innocent victims."

The rapper was arrested on charges stemming from the double homicide of two of his close friends, 21-year-old YNW Sakchaser (Anthony Williams) and 19-year-old YNW Juvy (Christopher Thomas Jr.) which occurred in October 2018.

YNW Melly (real name Jamell Demons) publicly mourned their deaths at the time before the surprise arrest back in March. YNW Bortlen was also arrested for the killings. Florida is one of 30 states where capital punishment is legal.
