CELEBRITY Murder

Being rich and in the public eye does not prevent or protect celebrities from committing crimes. O.J. Simpson set a precedent when his trial received round-the-clock media coverage and his household name became notorious. But he's far from being the only celebrity to have been tried for murder. 

The latest is actor Isaiah Stokes, who has appeared in shows like 'Law and Order: SVU,' 'Boardwalk Empire,' and 'Power.' Stokes was indicted for murder by a grand jury in Queens, New York, on July 16, according to E! News. The star is accused of fatally shooting a man back in February. The man, identified as Tyrone Jones, reportedly sat in a parked car when the incident occurred. "The defendant is accused of unloading nearly eleven shots during this brazen afternoon shooting," Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement.

According to court documents, Stokes was charged with murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. If convicted, he could face 25 years to life in prison.
