Five men accused of killing Milwaukee rap artist order to stand trial

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Five people charged in the death of a Milwaukee rap artist who had a sex change were ordered Thursday to stand trial on charges of first-degree intentional homicide.

Billy Griffin and Victor Stewart waived their rights to preliminary hearings in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. Ashanti McAlister, Devin Seaberry, and Ron Allen were bound over after a police detective testified about comments made by Stewart during a four-hour police interview.

All five are charged in the death of 22-year-old Emily Young, who was known as Evon Young before changing genders.

According to the testimony, a disagreement was brewing among the group over a burglary of Griffin’s house last August – and the five accused Young of helping in the break-in.

Some of the defendants told police that Young’s body was burned in a trash bin – and the remains were shipped to a landfill where police started searching for Young’s body this week.

The defendants range in age from 19-to-37.

They’re all due back in court February 19th, when trial dates are expected to be set.

A court commissioner rejected the defendants’ requests to reduce their $200,000 bonds, and ordered that they be kept separate while in jail so they don’t have contact with each other.
