(AllHipHop News) Rap veteran Kidd Creole has been held without bail following his arraignment on a second-degree murder charge.
The Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five star, real name Nathaniel Glover, was arrested on Wednesday in connection to the fatal stabbing of homeless John Jolly, a registered sex offender, in New York City.
He appeared before a Manhattan criminal court judge on Thursday, when Assistant District Attorney Mark Dahl claimed Glover had become “infuriated” because he thought the vagrant was gay and making a move on him.
The 57-year-old reportedly feared Jolly would try and rob him, so he pulled out a steak knife he had strapped to his arm and attacked the man.
Jolly, 55, sustained two stab wounds to the chest and was later hospitalized, where he was declared dead.
Glover, who had headed straight to work at a building nearby following the confrontation, remained quiet as Dahl recounted the incident in detail to demonstrate “the strength of the case” reports the Associated Press.
The suspect allegedly told Dahl he had washed the blood off the knife at his workplace, and had left his job early, tossing the weapon into a sewer as he headed home.
However, defense lawyer Patrick Watts questioned the prosecutor’s account, declaring the evidence is all “circumstantial.”
Glover, who was previously arrested in 2007 for possession of a gravity knife, was returned to his jail cell without bail following the arraignment hearing.
