Default R&B Singer Connected To Biggie Murder Is Denied Trial


Former R&B singer Waymond Anderson, who is currently incarcerated for being an accessory to a murder that took place in South LA in 1993, also known for making vigorous claims on the murder of late rapper The Notorious B.I.G., was denied of his request for a trial yesterday (December 10).

Anderson claims that he was wrongly convicted because he was in Mississippi at the time of the murder and not in LA.

But according to the Los Angeles Times, County Superior Court Judge William C. Ryan says Anderson’s story is “entirely unbelievable.”

“This court finds it totally incredible that the defendant would not be able to state that he was in Mississippi… when he was interviewed by the police after being arrested,” Ryan stated in his 32 page opinion. “Besides his obvious bias and motive to lie now, he is an admitted perjurer.”

Prosecutors have gladly welcomed the ruling for Anderson.

In bond with the slaying of rapper Notorious B.I.G., Anderson claims that LAPD officer Rafael Perez paid him a visit while he was incarcerated after the rapper was killed in 1997 and threatened him if he gave out any information about the killing.

Last year, Anderson retracted the claim during a trial that was brought from the Wallace family, suing the city of LA for the death of the rapper.

Anderson’s testimony also revealed that he lied about receiving threats that he was told about from former LA Times reporter, Chuck Philips.

Phillips had previously written a cover story on the matter concerning Anderson and has denied claims.
