Last month, YNW Melly was arrested for his reported involvement in the double homicide of YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy that happened back in October. Today, XXL reports that Melly (who's birth name is Jamell Demons) has pled not guilty to the murder charges. YNW Bortlen was also in the car with Melly at the time, with an arraignment set for next week.

Last week, a police report of the incident unveiled a slew of new details, including that Melly allegedly drove around with the bodies for a "period of time" following the shooting. Authorities used Snapchat mapping to confirm he and Bortlen were in the same vicinity as Sakchaser and Juvy.
