Key Vhani, a Miami rapper (real name: Kevhani Camilla Hicks) is charged with second degree murder after she shot her manager to death, something that was caught on surveillance video.
The footage shows Vhani arguing with a man, apparently her manager. Things escalated quickly and get physical. Another man joins the argument and Vhani is pushed to the ground and pinned there for a few seconds. She’s able to get up and starts to walk away. That’s when she pulls out a gun and begins firing. While the manager tries to escape, the second man runs. Vhani continues to follow the manager and shoots at him again. At that point, someone in a while car drives into her, running her over.
When cops arrived, they found the manager with several gunshot wounds and an injured Vhani. When the police asked her for a statement, she said she used the gun because she feared for her own safety. This self-defense plea allowed her to be released on a US$50,000 bond pending trial.
Here’s a report.
