XXXTentacion’s Girlfriend Responds to Guilty Verdict in XXX Murder Trial
"After 5 long years you may finally rest in peace," Sanchez shared in a post on her Instagram Story (below). "Gekyume will never get to meet you earthside but it is my job as a mother to ensure I share the special memories with him. Jah was robbed of his life and Geky was robbed of his father. For this I will never truly have complete peace but justice being served today helps the healing process."
She added, "Thank you for the love and support I am eternally grateful for all the supporters, your positivity and prayers have carried me these last 5 years."
The couple's son, Gekyume was born on Jan. 26, 2019, six months after the rapper was tragically killed.
This morning, a jury found Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome guilty of first-degree murder and armed robbery in connection to the June 18, 2018 robbery-homicide of the promising South Florida rapper. The trial began in January and it took jurors nearly eight days to come to a verdict of guilty. The three men face life in prison when sentenced at a late date. A fourth man, Robert Allen, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in connection to the crime last summer.
Sanchez's response comes on the heels of XXXTentacion's mom reacting to the verdict on social media.
