Pop Smoke accused killers were arrested earlier the past week and now it has been announced the men may face the death penalty if convicted.
Via TMZ: The 2 men and 2 teens who allegedly killed Pop Smoke have been slapped with murder charges, and while the death penalty is in play … prosecutors haven’t decided yet to seek it.
The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office announced criminal charges against 19-year-old Corey Walker and 18-year-old Keandre Rodgers, who were each charged with murder with special circumstance allegations that the killing went down during the commission of a robbery and burglary.
With the special circumstances, the death penalty is on the table. The D.A.’s Office adds that gang and gun allegations were made in their complaint as well.
On top of those two, a separate pair of teenagers — the youngest being 15 and the oldest 17 — were also charged with one count of murder and robbery in juvenile court. Their names weren’t released, as they’re still minors.
Even though the D.A.’s Office says they haven’t decided on whether to pursue capital punishment yet, both adult men face still face life in prison if convicted.
