Three People Indicted for Murder of Young Greatness
Three people have been indicted for the murder of New Orleans rapper Young Greatness, NOLA.com reported on Thursday (March 28).
As first announced through a news release from Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office, two men, Donald Reaux, 38, and Donny Maxwell, 18, along with 16-year-old Lovance Wix, are facing second-degree murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice charges stemming from the Oct. 29, 2018 shooting of the late rapper.
Reaux, who's also been indicted on a charge of illegal possession of a firearm by a felon, was originally arrested for second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice on Jan. 16. Maxwell and Wix were arrested for the same charges on Wednesday (March 27).
Greatness, who was signed to Cash Money Records before his death, was shot once outside of a Waffle House in New Orleans. After Greatness was shot, the suspects fled in a stolen vehicle, reportedly a Nissan Sentra.
At the time of the shooting, Greatness' mother, Jeanine Rose, criticized the local New Orleans government while explaining why young men die too soon in the city.
"I can't stand that place," she told New Orleans' WDSU. "They can have it with their politics and potholes. It's too many mothers taking slow walks to sad tombs while they sit at home and play politics with people's life and people living."
There's no word on when a trial for this case will begin.
