Rapper Lil Boosie is slated to appear in court today to face a hearing related to a first-degree murder charge.
Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, will attend the hearing along with two other Baton Rouge men - 17-year-old Michael "Marlo Mike'' Louding and 36-year-old Adrian Pittman - were indicted earlier this month on first-degree murder charges in Boyd's killing. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said investigators are looking into whether Hatch and others were involved in at least five other slayings since early last year. Louding is charged in six murders during that time span, including the February 2009 shooting death of local up-and-coming rapper Chris "Nussie'' Jackson.
A grand jury indicted Lil Boosie on a first-degree-murder charge on June 18th for his role in the October 2009 shooting death of Baton Rogue resident, 35-year-old Terry Boyd.
Lil Boosie, 27, has also been declared a suspect in at least two other murders, prosecutors recently confirmed.
As previously reported, Lil Boosie is being investigated in the murder of Chris “Nussie” Jackson, who was publicly feuding with Boosie until his murder in February of 2009.
Now, police are investigating if Lil Boosie and his alleged crew of killers were involved in the death of Darryl “Bleek” Milton.
Milton was a former employee of Lil Boosie’s record label, Bad Azz Entertainment, was found shot dead in his Cadillac on April 1st.
Five other people have been indicted in Milton’s killing already and East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore III, said police are investigating Boosie’s possible ties to the slaying.
Milton is featured prominently in Lil Boosie’s video for “We Out Chea” and his death is acknowledged at the end of the video.
Lil Boosie is facing death by lethal injection if he is convicted of 1st-degree murder.
