33 year old Zyderrious Platt of Columbus, Ohio appeared in court having been charged with murder of his wife Jilani Platt. The trial has not yet started when the victim’s brother, 30 year old Jeryl Carter attacked the murderer while crying “I’ll kill him!” Deputies wrestled the heartbroken brother in law to the ground, preventing any harm to the murder suspect. While on the ground, Carter Jeryl yelled:
He should die! Give him to me… Please let me kill him!
Zyderrious Platt faced several counts of murder and feticide for allegedly shooting 26 year old mother to be Jilani Platt in the head with a Luger handgun. The murder was allegedly instigated by the couple’s argument over rent money. Zyderrious Platt told police he choked his wife in their Crystal Court apartment and she fell to the floor at the top of the staircase. He then left to buy smokes and after he’d returned, he found Jilani motionless at the bottom of the stairs. So he stuffed her body in his Suburban and drove with her to a retention pond off Schatulga Road where as he said, he accidentally fired his weapon in the air and a bullet hit Jilani in the head.
LOL, ain’t that some shit. The guy’s wife is found murdered with a bullet wound in her head and he claims the gun accidentally went off and that pesky bullet, of all the possible targets in a 3 dimensional space, chose to strike his wife in the head. Talk about bad luck! The dude may as well pour acid on his face and claim a Muslim in a niqab attacked him. Or that he dove to shield his girlfriend in a movie theater.
According to Ledger Enquirer, Zyderrious Platt was found guilty of murder and feticide of his wife and her 10-week unborn child JaLon Elizabeth King. They give names to unborn children now? Muscogee County Superior Court Judge Bobby Peters sentenced Zyderrious Platt to two consecutive life sentences, plus five additional years on a weapons charge – as a convicted felon, he was illegally in possession of a handgun – and said:
You’re lucky they didn’t seek the death penalty against you!
