Homicide trial for Ashanti McAlister begins Monday

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A trial is scheduled to begin Monday for one of five people charged in the death of a Milwaukee rap artist.

His co-defendants say 19-year-old Ashanti McAlister pulled the trigger and killed 22-year-old Emily Young on New Year’s Day.

A second defendant, Billy Griffin, was found not guilty last week of homicide. Victor Stewart and Devin Seaberry have struck plea deals. The 5th and final defendant, Ron Allen of Milwaukee, has a trial set for October 7th.

The murder victim was known as Evon Young before she changed genders. Her stage name was “Yung LT.”

According to prosecutors, 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. Police spent almost two weeks looking for the remains at the dump, but they found nothing.
