A Florida judge denied bond to rapper Ace NH, who is accused of murder in the death of his pregnant girlfriend.
According to multiple reports, Judge Margaret Taylor ordered Ace NH to remain in jail until his trial on Monday (February 13). The judge also rejected the defense’s request for a gag order at the court hearing.
Tampa police arrested Ace NH, whose real name is Billy Adams, and charged him with first-degree murder on February 8. Authorities claimed he killed his pregnant girlfriend Alana Sims on January 30, just a few days after a jury acquitted him of murder in a separate case.
“What this defendant did is unimaginable,” State Attorney Susan S. Lopez said. “Our thoughts and support are with the family members of these crime victims. Since the night of the murders, we have worked closely with TPD to arrest this killer. While we respect the verdict of the jury in the prior case, we disagreed with it and that is why we prosecuted him.”
Earlier this year, Ace NH faced trial for the 2020 shooting deaths of Trevon Albury and Daniel Thompson. The rapper insisted he shot the men in self-defense. A jury agreed with Ace NH, finding him not guilty of murder.
