Michael Boatwright and co-defendants Trayvon Newsome and Dedrick Williams were charged with first degree murder. The three were also convicted of armed robbery. They were immediately handcuffed. Broward Sheriff's Office detectives argued Boatwright and Newsome jumped out of an SUV outside of Pompano Beach's RIVA Motorsports. Boatwright was the alleged triggerman, while Newsome robbed X of $50,000 cash. Williams was accused of being the getaway driver.

All three men are due back in court for sentencing on April 6th at 1:30 p.m.
