Preparing to begin the next phase of his career, Lil’ Boosie was said to be involved in the murder of Baton Rouge man, Terry Boyd. In 2010, Lil’ Boosie was sent to jail, without bail, because of his involvement in the murder of Boyd, the uncle of his daughter. According to police reports, Lil’ Boosie paid $2,800 to a young man named Michael Louding to take Terry Boyd out in October of 2009.
Louding testified in court, speaking on the murder of Terry Boyd. Previously speaking with police on tape, Louding revealed he murdered Boyd under orders from Boosie. However, this was after the officers told him Lil’ Boosie was free and was coming after him next. Out of apparent fear, Michael Louding testified against Lil’ Boosie, but told the court he lied and that he nor Lil’ Boosie were involved in the murder.
The defense has previously pointed out how Michael Louding had battled voices in his head, which told him to hurt people. On top of the defense further questioning Michael Louding and the tape being fully played, revealing the police setting Louding off, there was no proof of Boosie’s involvement. Today, on the fifth day of the trial, the defense surprisingly rested their defense case.
Tomorrow, the closing arugments will be presented and then Lil’ Boosie’s fate is officially in the hand of the jurors.
