MIRAMAR, FL – The State of Florida is reportedly seeking the death penalty for YNW Melly after he allegedly killed two members of his fellow YNW crew last October.

TMZ reports the State is confident it can “prove beyond a reasonable doubt” Melly murdered both men — YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy — for financial gain.

According to the legal docs, the State called it an especially heinous crime and said Melly committed homicide in a “cold, calculated and premeditated manner.” Officials also believe Melly is a criminal gang member.

Florida is one of 30 states that still allow capital punishment.

Melly was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in February. He pleaded not guilty last month.

Following an investigation, police determined Melly and YNW Bortlen staged the scene to look like a drive-by shooting. They then allegedly drove around with the two dead bodies in the Jeep Compass — where police think the shooting occurred — before dropping them off at a local ER.
