Megaman Demanded Death Of Rival

LATEST: Former British urban act SO SOLID CREW frontman MEGAMAN demanded the execution of a rival who insulted a band member, a court heard yesterday (06SEP06). The rapper, who is on trial for murder for the third time in London's Old Bailey court, is accused of aiding and abetting friend CARL MORGAN to shoot 24-year-old COLIN SCARLETT in Tooting, south London in 2004. Megaman was drawn into a spat between Morgan and Scarlett after the latter started seeing Morgan's ex-girlfriend. The pair reportedly collected a gun and drove to Scarlett's home, where Megaman - real name DWAYNE VINCENT - ordered Morgan to "just do what you came here to do". JEREMY DONNE, QC prosecuting lawyer, told the jury, "We say those words carry a very clear meaning. "It is no coincidence that Morgan immediately drew his gun and fired four shots." Scarlett died of gunshot wounds to the neck and chest. Morgan, 24, was found guilty of murdering Scarlett last year (05), but Vincent is standing trial for the third time due to "various technical and administrative reasons". Morgan was said to have killed Scarlett following a fight between the two men earlier in the day, which saw the murder victim attack Morgan in front of his ex-girlfriend - who was then dating Scarlett. The case continues.
