A Second Suspect Cornelius Smith Arrested For The Murder Of Young Dolph
Two men were filmed in November when they shot Young Dolph while shopping for cookies in his hometown of Memphis.
The two male suspects are finally arrested.
Today, U.S. marshals found 23-year-old Justin Johnson on charges of first degree murder and took him to Tennessee to face charges.
It turned out they already had Cornelius Smith. The 32-year-old man was arrested for auto theft on December 9 and has been in Desoto County Jail in Desoto, MS since then. The car in question was the white Mercedes used in the murder of Dolph and was towed from a house in Memphis a few days after Dolph’s death. Investigators say Smith and Johnson stole the car a week before it was used in Dolph’s murder.
Smith is also charged with first degree murder.
Both Young Dolph accused gunmen are in custody.
