Pop Smoke’s accused killer to not receive death penalty by prosecutors.

A judge was told by the prosecutors that they would not be seeking the death penalty  for the murder of the popular hip hop artist Pop Smoke. The trial is currently in progression as fans patiently wait to hear the outcome for those accused of killing one of hip hop’s most promising stars. There’s been speculation that the prosecutors would be pursuing the death penalty if the accuser is convicted of their crimes.
 

TheShadeRoom was in court this morning when one of the two adults accused of killing Pop Smoke was on trial. The prosecution on the case told the judge that they would not be seeking the death penalty for 20-year-old Corey Walker. Walker appeared in court for his arraignment hearing. Deputy District Attorney Hilary Williams, the prosecutor, told TheShadeRoom that the max. sentence Walker could receive if he’s found guilty is life without parole.

The New York Daily News reported that an informant that was placed in his jail cell recorded a conversation where Walker allegedly said that they used ski masks, gloves, and a police scanner when they robbed Pop to dodge getting caught.

Walker is due back in court this Wednesday where he’ll enter a formal plea following an issue with the paperwork.
