Lil Boosie Says He's Innocent Of First Degree Murder Charges

Lil Boosie recently commented on the new first degree murder charges that were levied against him by Baton Rouge prosecutors. While being transferred from the Louisiana State Police headquarters, where he underwent questioning, to the East Baton Rouge jail, Lil Boosie told reporters, “I’m innocent. I’m completely innocent.”

The new charges stem from the murder of a 35-year-old Louisiana man by the name of Terry Boyd. Authorities are claiming that Boosie hired a hitman to take out Boyd, who was shot while inside his house by a gunman, who was outside the home.

The Trill Entertainment rapper was also hit with drug charges after police say he attempted to smuggle narcotics into the Dixon Hills Correctional Facility, where he has been serving out a four year sentence that links back to drug charges and parole violations he accrued in late 2009.

His girlfriend, Walnita Decuir, 25, along with Joshua Wilson, a former correctional officer at Dixon Hills, and another inmate were also hit with drug charges.

The police are looking to other similar crimes that were committed over the last year with the hopes of linking them to Boosie. “We’re investigating the others in a similar fashion,” said East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore. “We are investigating the common pattern of these killings and money.”

By the time the investigation ends, Boosie could be facing five additional murder charges. If convicted of the single murder charge he is facing now he could receive the death penalty.
