Jury Selection Starts Monday For G-Dep Murder Trial


(AllHipHop News) Former Hip-Hop star G-Dep is facing 25 years to life in prison, as the initial phase of his murder trial is set to begin, on Monday.

Jury selection will begin tomorrow (April 9) for the rap star, who is accused of killing a man almost 20 years ago, in 1993.

G-Dep, 37, walked into a police station in 2010 and admitted to shooting John Henkel during a botched robbery in 1993.

What G-Dep did not know is that John Henkel had died from his wounds.

Since there is no statute of limitations on murder, G-Dep was charged with first-degree murder.

G-Dep said he made the confession to police as part of a 12-step recovery program, in an attempt to become drug-free, after years of using PCP.

G-Dep, born Trevell Coleman, has pleaded not guilty to the charges despite his confession.

The rap star’s own defense team plans to question his statements about the shooting, due to years of PCP use.

G. Dep, who is married with three children, is best known for his hit 2001 singles “Special Delivery” and the remix to the song, both of which were released on Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records’ imprint.
