A court date has been set for the gunmen accused of killing Memphis rapper Young Dolph last November.
In November 2021, rapper Young Dolph was killed while visiting McDas Cookies in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
Dolph stopped making cookies for his grandmother before arranging his annual turkey gift for Thanksgiving when he was fatally shot. In the days following his murder, police worked to resolve the case and quickly spotted several suspects. Justin Johnson, aka Strait Drop, and Cornelius Smith were charged with murder. Shortly after their arrest, both men asked the judge for more time to raise money for a proper legal team.
The judge’s patience quickly ran out, and at the end of January, he demanded that they be represented by February 4th. In March, the West Tennessee Regional Forensic Center said their autopsy showed that Young Dolph had been shot about 22 times.
The court date is set for July
Smith and Johnson’s legal team requested a July 1 trial date Although most of the cases have been kept under wraps, this July, we will finally hear about the suspicious motive behind the killing of Young Dolph. On the same day, there will be a hearing on Smith’s bond after spending almost a year behind bars.
