One of four men arrested on suspicion of murdering XXXTentacion has claimed prosecutors are violating his rights.

The defence are looking to gain access to arrest warrant affidavits, witness lists, police reports, and any other information regarding the evidence against the 22-year-old. His legal team have demanded the documents be handed over immediately.
“Other than the broadly worded indictment, the State has provided no information whatsoever regarding the nature of the evidence against Mr. Boatright,” his lawyer reportedly wrote. “Such failure by the State to furnish the Defendant with discovery has seriously impeded the preparation of the case and has thereby unjustly jeopardise the ability of Mr. Boatwright’s attorneys to prepare a defence.”
