Rapper LIL' KIM is expected to surrender herself to authorities in Manhattan, New York, today (14APR04) after she and four associates were indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges following a 2001 shooting.

The sexy star, real name KIMBERLY JONES, was indicted after a a grand jury declared there was sufficient evidence for the case to go to trial.

As a result, Kim is expected to appear in court later today (14APR04) to face charges at an arraignment hearing.

The rapper is charged with allegedly lying to investigators about her involvement in the February 2001 shooting, which left one man with gunshot wounds to his back.

When questioned by police the day after the incident, Kim claimed to have no knowledge of what caused the fracas and refused to tell police who was with her at the HOT 97 radio studios when the shooting took place.

It was later discovered that Kim had been at the station when the shots rang out following a feud between her entourage and that of rival rappers Capone-N-Noreaga.

Kim and her friend MONIQUE DOPWELL also allegedly lied when later questioned by a grand jury in connection with the investigation.
