Rapper Javell Hall convicted of murder after trying to pin killing on twin brother


A teenage rapper from England was convicted of murder after unsuccessfully trying to pin the crime on his twin brother, a report said Thursday.

The drill rapper, 18-year-old Javell Hall, was charged in the slaying of 24-year-old Asante Campbell, who was stabbed to death by a group of men in north London in 2019, the BBC reported.

DNA matching Hall’s was found on the sheath of the knife used to kill Campbell, who was stabbed through his car window while picking up a co-worker on the way to a night shift, the outlet said.

During the trial, Hall reportedly told a judge, “I never touched that knife. If it’s not mine it must be [my twin brother’s].”

Identical twins share their DNA code.

Juror’s didn’t buy the drill rapper’s defense and ruled he was one of the killers responsible for the murder.

Hall and Kofi Abusah, 19, were both convicted of the crime, according to the report. The jury failed to reach a verdict on a third suspect, who may face a retrial.

The convicted killers will be sentenced next month.
