Rap icon Kidd Creole charged with murder for homophobic attack

Rap icon Kidd Creole charged with murder for homophobic attackā€

Assistant District Attorney Mark Dahl has reported that the altercation was ignited by Jolly continuously asking Glover "What's up?", to which the defendant took as an insinuation that he was homosexual and became enraged.

However, defense lawyer Patrick Watts questioned the prosecutor's account, declaring the evidence is all "circumstantial".

Glover then "pulled out a knife that he had attached to his forearm with rubber bands and stabbed [Jolly] in the chest with the knife two times", stated the criminal complaint obtained by ABC News.

Jolly was found unconscious later that day by the police and taken to the hospital, where he pronounced dead. According to the charges, he was on his way to work when the homeless man, who was a convicted sex offender and was drunk, approached Creole. He said Glover told him he tossed the knife into a sewer grate in the Bronx. He had been staying at a shelter in the Bowery and had at least 16 prior arrests.

Glover, who was previously arrested in 2007 for possession of a gravity knife, was returned to his jail cell without bail following the arraignment hearing.

Glover made his name in the 1970s as part of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, one of the most influential rap groups of all time.
