(Gossip-Grind News) Rapper Shyheim Pleads Guilty To Manslaughter And Weapon Charges:
Former child star and Wu Tang Clan affiliate Shyheim Franklin has pleaded guilty to weapon-possession charges as well as a second-degree manslaughter charge. The manslaughter charge stems from a New Years Day hit-and-run on Staten Island.
SILive reports Shyheim was accused on speeding through a stop sign around 5 a.m. that morning. He ended up crashing into a car and killing Felipe Avila Olea before hitting another parked vehicle. According to authorities, the emcee/actor then fled the scene on foot, but left his blood and watch in the borrowed Volvo S80 he was driving.
The weapon charge stemmed from police discovering a loaded gun in Shyheim’s apartment in April of 2013. Shyheim previously served a two-year sentence for an attempted-robbery conviction.
