The drama that has trailed the trail of X’s murder seems to unfold each day. The last we heard of it was Michael Boatwright’s plan to depose the man who took photos of the late rapper while he took his final breaths after the fatal shooting. Now, new reports by XXL show that the defendant’s lawyer also plans to depose the late rapper’s mother and his girlfriend in hopes that it would help Boatwright’s defense case.
X’s mom, Cleopatra Bernard and his girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez (also the mother of his son) are expected to appear in court on Sept. 10 after being subjected to the deposition. Although no one knows how both their testimonies would help Michael Boatwright’s case, his lawyers do seem confident about it.
Cleopatra and Jenesis are not the only ones the lawyer plans to depose, reports also state that Boatwright’s would also depose X’s friend, Leonard Kerr, who was with him when the murder took place. This makes it four people who Boatwright plans to depose in the coming trial, including; Scott Barbieux, Cleopatra Bernard, Jenesis Sanchez and Leonard Kerr.
Michael Boatwright is one of four suspects charged with XXXTentacion‘s death alongside; Dedrick Williams, Trayvon Newsom, and Robert Allen. All four suspects are charged with first degree murder for allegedly contributing to the killing of the late rapper. According to the prosecution, Boatwright was the trigger man in the murder while Williams was the driver of the SUV.
