Wiz Khalifa and his family have been dealt a bit of closure now that individuals have taken responsible for the January 2014 shooting death of his younger uncle, Imani Porter.
Both Michael Wolford, 21, and Jaron Young, 19 plead guilty to third-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and firearms violations and will be sentenced to 30-60 years and 12½ to 25 years, respectively as reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
On the night of January 10, 2014, both men met up with Porter at a Steak n Shake for a heroin transaction when they attempted to get away without paying for the drugs. After a scuffle ensued, Wolford shot Porter in the head, killing him at the scene.
Although it wasn’t a direct tribute to Wiz Khalifa’s uncle, the chart-topping single “See You Again” from the Furious 7 soundtrack has resonated with fans all across the globe who have lost a loved one.
A third perp, 21-year-old Larry Sanders had homicide and robbery charges withdrawn from his record in favor of felony drug and drug-related conspiracy charges by Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Anthony Mariani. Although he had been sentenced to nine to eighteen months in prison, Sanders had previously served 510 days before he was paroled and is now free with three years probation.
“Mr. Sanders was never involved in a homicide, and in my opinion, never should have been charged with homicide,” his attorney, Ralph Karsh said.
As for the other two, there is no more black and yellow for orange is their new black.
