Rapper Ice-T’s grandson indicted on ‘involuntary manslaughter’
The 20-year-old grandson of Ice-T has been indicted in Georgia over the shooting death of his roommate.
Elyjah Marrow, who appeared in reality show Ice Loves Coco with his grandfather, was arrested in June last year after allegedly shooting Daryus Johnson, 19, in the chest while handling a stolen gun.
His roommate was unconscious by the time police arrived, and later died from his injuries.
Marrow was indicted by a Cobb County grand jury on June 4 on charges of involuntary manslaughter and theft by receiving stolen property and possession of firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.
Other charges include possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana more than an ounce, according to the Cobb County District Attorney’s Office.
He is currently free on bond.
Police claim Marrow had been ‘recklessly’ handling the gun before it went off accidentally.
Marietta police officer David Baldwin said: ‘Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun.’
Marrow, who lives in Marietta, Georgia, has appeared regularly in the reality show starring his famous granddad.
