YNW Melly is still facing two charges of first-degree murder
The 22-year-old has been locked up since February of 2019 for killing his crew members YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser.
The good news for Melly is they recently took the death penalty off the table. The bad news is the forensic and DNA evidence against him is substantial and he will likely get a long sentence.
However, he's angling for a little time on the outside before the hammer drops.
His lawyers are asking for a medical furlough for a painful abscess in his lower jaw.
According to his legal team, Melly can't use a standard toothbrush or visit the dentist in jail and the diamond crowns in his teeth -- which require constant cleaning -- have become infected.
They say he has the funds to see a dentist on the outside and are requesting he be able to.
