UK rapper’s murder trial begins

So Solid Crew leader in court for third time

UK rapper’s murder trial begins
So Solid Crew rapper Megaman has gone on trial for the third time at the Old Bailey for murder today (September 5).

Megaman, real name Dwayne Vincent, is accused of urging his friend to murder Colin Scarlett in 2004 in a revenge killing.

Carl Morgan was found guilty in 2005 of murdering Scarlett.

Jurors were told that due to “technical and administrative reasons” Vincent was being tried for murder a third time. Vincent denies the charge.

Jeremy Donne, the prosecuting QC told the court that Scarlett was shot four times by Morgan outside his home in Tooting, BBC News reports.

Donne said that earlier in the day Morgan had been beaten up by Scarlett and was left to “brood on how he might exact his revenge on his tormentor".

“When they found Mr Scarlett, there was a brief encounter before Morgan, with Vincent's encouragement and support, shot him dead,” Donne added.

The case continues.
