G-Dep’s Own Confession Could Ruin His Defense; Details of Murder Revealed


Vibe / April 12, 2012

[AllHipHop News] Lawyers for G-Dep may have a hard time defending their client, due to his own videotaped admission to a 1993 shooting/murder.

G-Dep, born Trevell Coleman, is currently on trial for shooting a man named John Henkel during a botched robbery in 1993.

In December of 2010, G-Dep walked into the 23rd Precinct in New York and admitted to the shooting, as part of a drug rehabilitation program.

What G-Dep did not know, is that John Henkel died from his injuries.

G-Dep, who is currently on trial for Henkel’s murder, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

His defense lawyers claim that G-Dep did shoot somebody that evening, just not John Henkel, the man who died.

G-Dep’s lawyers claim that years of PCP use has clouded his memory.

But G-Dep’s confession was played to jurors during his trial yesterday (April 11).
