YNW Melly’s co-defendant YNW Bortlen has been released from jail and is on house arrest.
His bond has been revoked.
The family of YNW Juvy (who is one of the victims of the double homicide), released a statement.
“Our family desperately awaits justice in the criminal and civil courts. These unprecedented times leave us with no control, but we expect the trials of Jamell Demons and Cortlen Henry to occur in the near future. We do appreciate the State of Florida’s efforts to get answers and justice,” the statement reads.
“Please continue to pray for our family,” they added. “Matters are worsened by the constant posts and promotions by the defendants as if this never happened and as if they aren’t involved. Evidence shows otherwise. We await justice.”
YNW Bortlen was arrested again in April for violating the terms of his pretrial release by visiting several private residences -- as well as several strip clubs.
YNW Melly is still behind bars. Fans are wondering whether Bortlen cooperated.
