23-Year-Old Woman Charged With Murder Of Sydney Hip Hop Artist Scepaz

Written by Tom Williams on August 14, 2018

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of Sydney hip hop artist Scepaz (real name Jett McKee), whose body was found on an inner-west street on Friday.

The ABC reports the woman — who was on the run for three days — was charged by police after turning herself in at Newtown Police Station.

She was refused bail and is due to appear in Newtown Local Court today.

A 28-year-old man also reportedly handed himself in, and has been taken to hospital under police guard for treatment of a pre-existing facial injury. He is expected to be charged after leaving hospital.

30-year-old McKee was supposedly attacked with a samurai sword during a suspected home invasion in the suburb of Forest Lodge on Friday, and was later found dead in the street.

Triple j‘s Hau Latukefu took to Facebook to post a tribute to the artist, saying, “Over the weekend, I was saddened to hear the passing of Sydney artist, Scepaz.

“I would see him at gigs, play his music on the show and he was always respectful. I know how hard it is to lose a loved one, especially at such a young age, so I’d like to wish strength & love to his family, crew and supporters. Blessings.”
