The Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office confirmed on Thursday (Mar. 26) that the alleged murder suspects, Donald Reaux, 38, and Donny Maxwell, 18, and 16-year-old Lovance Wix have been indicted for second-degree murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice charges stemming from Young Greatness’ Oct. 2018 death.
Reaux, who was also indicted on one charge of illegal possession of a firearm by a felon, was the first suspect to be arrested for on Jan. 16, 2019. Maxwell and Wix were later brought into custody for the same charges on Wednesday (Mar. 27).
Greatness, who was signed to Cash Money Records at the time of his death, was fatally shot outside of a Waffle House in New Orleans on Oct. 29, 2018. The suspects reportedly fled the scene in a stolen vehicle, authorities claimed.
During the investigation, Greatness’ mother, Jeanine Rose, criticized local New Orleans politicians for failing to take action in her son’s murder. “I can’t stand that place,” Rose told New Orleans’ WDSU. “They can have it with their politics and potholes. It’s too many mothers taking slow walks to sad tombs while they sit at home and play politics with people’s life and people living.”
The trial date for the three suspects has not been disclosed at this time.
