(AllHipHop News) Four years later, there’s finally movement on the passing of Nicki Minaj’s tour manager, De’Von Pickett.

Pickett was 29-years-young when he was fatally stabbed outside a bar in East Germantown, on February 18, 2015.

A man named Pierce Boykin was held for trial at a preliminary hearing on April of 2015, but now prosecutors are saying evidence points to a 37-year-old man named Khaliyfa Neely.

This was the result of a fight that broke out at Che Bar & Grill on 6364 Stenton Ave.

While murder charges against Boykin were dropped in August of 2016, he pled guilty to aggravated assault and was sentenced up to 23 months in state prison.

Neely is being charged with murder, conspiracy, and other related counts.
