YSL RICO Trial Day 10 (UPDATE): Shannon Stillwell Stabbing & Jail Attack Details Released – Court Cancelled | VIDEO

*The details of the vicious jailhouse stabbing of YSL RICO trial co-defendant Shannon Stillwell have been revealed by Fulton County investigators. SOHH.com has learned Shannon Stillwell was stabbed in the back and stomach by a fellow inmate who said he was retaliating after being antagonized by Stillwell in the early hours of December 11th. An investigation is underway as to why Stillwell was outside of protective custody where he has been since being stabbed at this same jail in July 2022.

COURT CANCELLED
The YSL RICO trial, which has captivated the nation’s attention, was canceled immediately on Day 10. Judge Glanville released the courtroom after announcing that Shannon Stillwell, one of the defendants in the YSL trial, was stabbed overnight at the notorious Rice Street jail in Fulton County, GA.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours on Dec. 11, leading to the abrupt cancellation of court proceedings scheduled to start at 9 am at the Fulton County Courthouse. Stillwell was stabbed in his abdomen by a shank fashioned from broken metal shards at the rundown jail building. He underwent surgery for two hours and is said to be in stable condition.

STILLWELL STABBED OUTSIDE OF PROTECTIVE CUSTODY
Infamous Sylvia spoke exclusively with Stillwell’s wife, Tyesha Alexander, who revealed that she had spoken with her husband just after midnight on November 11th. Moments later, she said she started to receive urgent messages that he had been stabbed. She rushed to the jail and accompanied him to Grady Hospital where he underwent a two-hour surgery.

Stillwell, accused of being the 2nd in command in the YSL criminal organization, had been in protective custody since a similar July 2022 attack. A police lieutenant informed Stillwell’s wife that they would investigate why he was exposed to the other prisoner.

The prisoner, since identified as Willie Brown, claimed he was retaliating after Stillwell antagonized him. He has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of prohibited items in the stabbing.

RICE STREET JAIL KNOWN FOR VIOLENCE
Stillwell has been held in the Rice Street jail in Fulton County for the last sixteen months during trial proceedings. According to Infamous Sylvia, the jail has been notorious for violent incidents, disrepair, and poor inmate treatment.

The Georgia Recorder highlights severe overcrowding and deteriorating conditions at the jail. Staff from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office report that inmates can fashion makeshift weapons by accessing walls, and removing broken flooring, electrical coverings, and broken pipes. It was built to hold up to 1,125 prisoners in 1989 but now occasionally tops 3,000. Known as Georgia’s most notorious lockup, the jail is under federal and state investigation.

YNW MELLY TRIAL PUSHED TO FEBRUARY 2024
In a separate legal case that has also garnered attention, YNW Melly’s retrial in a double murder case has been delayed until February 2024. The request for an extension by prosecutors led to the rescheduling of the opening arguments.
