The fourth suspect in the Young Dolph murder case appeared in court for the first time on Tuesday. Jermarcus Johnson is charged with one count of first-degree murder conspiracy. This 25-year-bail old’s is $300,000.
The following court date for Johnson is December 16. He is the sole suspect in the death of Young Dolph who has been granted bail. Authorities think Johnson was involved both before and after the “Get Paid” rapper’s murder. Courts assert that “the indictment says that he engaged in the conspiracy, that he assisted Justin Johnson in eluding capture upon its conclusion, and that he organized payments to some of the defendants.”
Johnson has been accused as the fourth suspect in the death of Dolph after turning himself in to investigators earlier this month. Just a few days after the senseless massacre, Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith, two other suspects, were taken into custody. According to sources, Justin requested a judge’s permission to move from the pre-trial detention facility to the Shelby County Division of Corrections at the Penal Farm in East Memphis because of safety and security issues as well as the confinement circumstances.
On Tuesday, the 23-year-old received some alarming information regarding his accusations. A few days before to his court appearance, he allegedly uploaded a song on YouTube. Then, a court ruled that Johnson’s phone, writing, and visitation rights would all be suspended and that he would be placed in “administrative segregation.”
A third person was charged with a crime related to the rapper’s murder earlier this month. Hernandez Govan, age 43, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree murder conspiracy. Shundale Barnett, a different suspect who is currently detained in Indiana, is charged with being an accessory to Young Dolph’s shooting death.
