Alleged DJ Megatron Killers Plead Not Guilty

Though police claim that they initially confessed to the crime, the two Staten Island men arrested in connection with the shooting death of radio and TV personality DJ Megatron have reportedly pleaded not guilty.

On Wednesday (April 7), Richard Cromwell, 20, and William Williams, 21, were arrested on charges of possession of a weapon, robbery and murder, after Megatron, born Corey McGriff, was shot and killed in Staten Island on Sunday (March 27). The 32-year old DJ and father of three was reportedly on an early morning marijuana run, when he was accosted by his young killers.

Cromwell and Williams appeared in court last week, where prosecutors accused them of stalking and murdering Megatron, citing surveillance footage of the crime. Despite police claims that they gave full confessions during their interrogations, it is now being reported that Williams and Cromwell have now pleaded not guilty to the crimes. The two are due back in court on April 19.

“He was a positive person and he was dedicated. Dedicated to treating people nice,” Megatron’s brother, Marlon McGriff told NY 1 News of his slain sibling. “He was a very good sacrificer. All for the positive, not for the negative.”
