G-Dep?s Own Confession Could Ruin His Defense; Details Of Murder Revealed

Lawyers for G-Dep may have a hard time defending their client, due to his own videotaped admission to a 1993 shooting/murder.

G-Dep, born Trevell Coleman, is currently on trial for shooting a man named John Henkel during a botched robbery in 1993.

In December of 2010, G-Dep walked into the 23rd Precinct in New York and admitted to the shooting, as part of a drug rehabilitation program.

What G-Dep did not know, is that John Henkel died from his injuries.

G-Dep, who is currently on trial for Henkel’s murder, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

His defense lawyers claim that G-Dep did shoot somebody that evening, just not John Henkel, the man who died.

G-Dep’s lawyers claim that years of PCP use has clouded his memory.

But G-Dep’s confession was played to jurors during his trial yesterday (April 11).

A full copy of the confession hit the New York Post this morning.

The rapper said that he was 18-years-old and living with his grandmother when the shooting took place.

“I had a gun in the house and I brought it out one night,” G-Dep told police. “I got on my bike. My intent was to get some money and rob somebody.”

G-Dep said he saw a man standing on Park Avenue in Harlem, smoking a cigarette.

He approached the man with a .40 caliber handgun and demanded money from Hencle, who put his hands up.

Henkel attempted to grab the gun from G-Dep, who jerked the weapon away and shot him at point-blank range in the torso.

When Henkel attempted to grab G-Dep, the rapper jumped on his bike and rode away empty-handed.

Two days afterwards, G-Dep said that detectives in the area questioned him in passing, about the shooting.

Over 17 years later, G -Dep said a guilty conscience led him to confess to the shooting.

But G-Dep, who has pleaded not guilty to shooting Henkel, claims that he admitted to shooting someone else.

Prosecutors claim that G-Dep’s confession is too detailed and matches detectives records about the case.

G-Dep is facing 35-years to life in prison if he is convicted.
