(AllHipHop News) The first-degree murder trial of rapper Lil Boosie is taking a toll on a number of people involved in the trial.
Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is accused of hiring a 16-year-old named “Marlo” Michael Louding to shoot and kill a 35-year-old named Terry Boyd, in October 2009, for $2,800.
During emotional testimony earlier this week, Terry Boyd’s family left the court room distraught, as did the sister of Michael Louding, who spoke exclusively to AllHipHop.com.
In addition to the murder of Terry Boyd, Michael Louding is accused of committing at least six murders in the Baton Rouge area from, 2000 until 2009.
During a break in testimony his sister, who declined to identify herself by name, said that her brother is not the monster prosecutors are painting him to be.
“He’s a jokester, made everybody laugh, super funny kid, he loves his nephews, he is real lovable,” the woman told AllHipHop.com.
When asked about their other family members, she said that her “mom leaves everything up to God.”
“She’s like God will handle it, she has diabetes and a bad heart, so she’s not going to attend any of this,” Louding’s sister said.
Louding’s sister said that her brother looks up to Boosie and he felt like he was part of the rap star’s entourage.
“Boosie couldn’t of came into his life at a better time, he was going through a real hard time,” she said.
When asked if she felt that Boosie helped her brother she said “no, but in his [Louding’s] mind he did.”
Lil Boosie’s murder trial continues.
