According to newly released legal documents obtained by Complex, authorities have listed Roland "Ro Murda" Martin as another co-defendant in 6ix9ine's federal racketeering case, bringing the total of indicted individuals to seven.
Ro Murda, a suspected gang member, was captured by the U.S. Marshals Service task force last Friday. He is accused of carrying out various violent crimes as a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods—a set of the Bloods street gang. Ro Murda's co-defendants are 6ix9ine, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, Jensel "Ish" Butler, Faheem "Crippy" Walter, Fuguan "Fu Banga" Lovick, and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones.
According to the new documents, Mel is now facing two additional charges, bringing the total counts up to 10. One of the charges is for narcotics trafficking and the other is for distribution and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. The drugs he is accused of trafficking are heroin, fentanyl, and MDMA.
Prosecutors claim Mel is a "GF" or "God Father," a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. They say his status within the gang, a.k.a. Tr3way, was confirmed in his recorded prison phone calls with the aforementioned co-defendants.
Earlier this week, TMZ released a transcript of a wiretap conversation between Mel, Shotti, and an unidentified individual. The men were heard describing 6ix9ine as a "snitch" who "needed to get violated." Shotti—6ix9ine's former manager—went on to say he was going to "feed" the rapper; investigators believe "feed" was slang for firing bullets.
6ix9ine and his co-defendants are currently behind bars. The rapper has pleaded not guilty to six counts involving racketeering, firearms possession, assault, and conspiracy to commit murder. If convicted on all charges, he will face 32 years to life in prison. His trial is set to begin September 2019.
