Former Bad Boy rapper G. Dep, born Trevell Coleman, is now claiming that the authorities have linked him to the wrong victim. This is despite the fact that Coleman turned himself in back in 2010 for the 1993 shooting of a man in Harlem. The man subsequently died, and Coleman was charged with murder.
Now his legal representation are saying that John Henkel, the man whom Coleman is charged with killing, is not the individual that was shot in 1993. But prosecutors believe the victim is a match.
"There are no other homicides even close to fitting the description," prosecutor David Drucker told potential jurors.
G. Dep faces 15 years in prison.
