XXXTENTACION s murder trial is currently underway and the latest developments in the courtroom include one of the four murder suspects describing in detail what happened, as well as accusing one of his alleged three cohorts of witness intimidation. Wednesday (February 8) was day three of the trial, and co-defendant Robert Allen took the stand. Allen pleaded guilty to second-degree murder charges in August 2022 and was expected to testify against his accomplices in hopes of a lighter sentence which is exactly what he did. As hes grabbing the bag shots are fired, Allen told the courtroom When asked to clarify who fired the shots, Allen responded: Michael Boatwright. When asked to confirm who Boatwright allegedly shot, Allen responded, Triple X. Allen also broke down how the $50,000 that X was robbed of was allegedly dispersed among the four co-defendants. After saying he only received $5,000 while Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome each got $15,000, Allen was asked why. I wasnt participating in the robbery, Allen responded. actually said I wasnt going to get any money at all. Back in August following his plea, Robert Allens lawyer explained why his client was taking the position. Mr. Allens role was much less than the other three involved, Jim Lewis told NBC Miami . It was always kind of contemplated that the State was looking to use him as a witness in the case. And finally we came to an agreement and plead to the agreement today. Again, his involvement was much less than the others, he continued. More of an accusatory after the fact than really part of the planning. Certainly never got out of the car, never had a gun, never shot anybody. And hopefully the judge and the State will take this into consideration. On day four of the trial on Thursday (February 9), Allen testified that Newsome was attempting witness intimidation Judge Michael Usan asked: When you were being escorted to the courtroom today did you overhear any comments? After affirming the question, Allen was asked to say what he heard. I heard that I was a police-ass n-gga, I work for the police, Im doing a white mans job and Im a sell out, Allen said before naming Newsome. In addition to Allen, the teller from the bank transactionwhere X took out the $50,000 he was ultimately robbed of while being shot also took the stand. She was asked about the late rappers demeanor during their interaction. He was fine. He seemed happy, Cecilia Ramos said.
