There may be added justice made to Jam Master Jay for his murder as his killer may get an additional five years in prison.

Jam Master Jay lost his life in October 2002 when he was shot and killed in his recording studio in New York. The case is still lingering despite it being two decades since the rap icon’s death. The suspects are currently being investigated. Word is the shooting happened because of a drug deal gone bad. Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr. are believed to be the killers. Last August, the two were formally indicted for the murder of Jam Master Jay, whose real name is Jason Mizell.

NBC New York reported Friday, that new charges have been laid against Karl Jordan Jr., ones unrelated to the murder of the Run-DMC legend. The newest charges against Jordan include conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute controlled substances and use of firearms in connection with a drug-trafficking crime. Jordan will spend an additional five years in prison for the charges if he is convicted, on top of the time he will already have for his murder charge.

Jam Master Jay was allegedly in possession of 10 kilos of cocaine at the time of his murder, which Jordan and Washington were in search of. According to prosecutors, Jay told Washington that he “would not be involved in distributing the narcotics in Maryland, which precipitated the murder conspiracy.” Jordan then delivered the fatal shot that killed Jay.
