Juvenile’s 4-year-old daughter was killed by her 17-year-old brother
Finding out about the death of a relative must be very bad, especially when it comes to one of your children. – As Celebritist figured out on Hip Hop DX, a 17-year-old was accused of murdering his mother and his two sisters.
The youngest, Jelani, 4, was the daughter of rapper Juvenile, according to authorities in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Statements by prosecutors confirm that Anthony Tyrone Terrell shot twice Joy Deleston, 39, after they argued. When Micaiah, his 11-year-old sister, saw her mother being shot, she started screaming. Suddenly, Terrell shot her several times. Then he went to look for his little sister, Jelani.
He climbed the stairs, kissed her on the forehead and then shot her in the chest two times. The bodies of his family were discovered the night after, said Illana Spellman, the police spokeswoman. The true motives of the accused are still unknown. Time after, Terrell was introduced to the court, where Micaiah’s father, Dominic Ross, and Deleston’s mother, his grandmother, Mildred Richardson said they forgave his actions and that they loved him. However, he was convicted to two life sentences.
The judge said that it was the best way for him to review his actions, which affected both his family and friends. He would have plenty of time for it. According to the archives, Deleston – who was a Gwinnett County Sheriff’s agent- introduced a paternity suit in 2004, claiming that Terius Gray, 32, the real name of the rapper, was Jelani’s father. Juvenile lawyer’s, Randy Kessler, said the case was settled in 2006.
