Lead Prosecutor Removed From YNW Melly Murder Trial!!

Lyndon Abioye |

Broward Circuit Court Judge John Murphy granted the YNW Melly’s defense attorney’s motion to remove the lead prosecutor in the rapper’s double murder retrial after prosecutors failed to reveal that he had previously accused of being willing to lie as he collected evidence.

Assistant State Attorney Kristine Bradley was removed because she had gone from working as a “zealous advocate for the state” to being “personally invested in the outcome of the case.”

Assistant State Attorney Michelle Boutros testified Friday that she overheard Miramar Police Detective Mark Moretti, lead investigator in the case against the rapper, ask a Broward County deputy to lie about being present when he executed a search warrant outside his jurisdiction.

The judge did not find that Bradley’s integrity had been compromised but agreed that she could not serve as a prosecutor on the case if the defense were preparing to call her as a witness concerning the credibility of one of the investigators.
