So Solid Retrial
SO SOLID CREW star MEGAMAN is to face a third murder trial in the light of new evidence. The 21 SECONDS rapper - real name DWAYNE VINCENT - is accused of prompting pal Carl Morgan to shoot his ex-girlfriend's new man in 2004 after he was beaten up by him. Morgan was jailed for life last year (05) for the south London murder. However, the jury in Vincent's case failed to reach a verdict. His retrial at London's Old Bailey, which opened last month (MAR06), was abandoned today (13APR06) after new evidence was uncovered. Judge Martin Stephens discharged the jury from returning a verdict, insisting, "Material and fresh information has come to light at a very late stage of the proceedings. "I have concluded after the most anxious and careful consideration that this material is of sufficient relevance that it has to be investigated further and put before a jury." British hip-hop outfit So Solid Crew, who boast about 30 members, have been plagued by allegations of criminal activity in recent years.
