XXXTENTACION‘s murder trial is coming to an end, and his family is anxiously awaiting the verdict as jurors continue their days-long deliberation.

On Monday (March 13), the family of the late rapper was seen gathered in court as the jury’s fourth day of deliberations came to an end. However, the jury’s request to see nearly 1,200 text messages, as well as a number of videos and photos, that were taken from two of the three suspects’ cellphones — the alleged shooter Michael Boatwright and the alleged getaway driver and ringleader Dedrick Williams — may extend the duration required for a verdict.

Several text exchanges and an image of a news story about the incident were discovered on the phone.

The jury didn’t request any information from the phones of  Trayvon Newsome, the alleged second gunman nor from Robert Allen, the alleged co-conspirator who, as previously reported, testified against the other three in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence.

The photos of X’s family in court can be seen below.

In court the week prior, Prosecutor Pascale Achille revealed cellphone footage that allegedly shows Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome dancing with handfuls of $100 bills hours after murdering XXXTentacion.

“This is who they are,” Achille said, according to the outlet. “This is their real character. Killers that within 24 hours after shooting the victim dead and stealing $50,000 from him, this is what they do. Look at how happy they look. Look at how excited they look.”

Prosecutors also played surveillance video footage from the motorcycle shop in which two of the guys were seen hiding a SUV that was linked to the murder of XXXTentacion.

According to the defense attorneys for the defendants, the money-flashing videos, were “stupid,” they don’t prove anything.

“He did some stupid things — he posed with some money,” Newsome’s attorney George Reres said. “Guilt by association is not something the law permits.”

If found guilty of first-degree murder, Boatwright, Williams, and Newsome would all spend the rest of their lives in jail.
