In February, Silento was arrested for the murder of his cousin Frederick Rooks, who was found shot in the face and the legs in DeKalb county Georgia. He died in the ambulance.
Today, the author of the 2015 viral sensation 'Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)?" has been charged with one count of malice murder, one count of felony murder, aggravated assault, and gun possession during the commission of a felony for the killing of his 34-year old cousin.
In 2020, Silento was charged with assault after getting caught looking for his girlfriend with a hatchet.
Silento lawyers are prepared to argue mental illness in his murder case. He's being held without bond.
