BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It was expected to be a big day at the 19th Judicial District Courthouse in Baton Rouge, as rapper Lil Boosie had been scheduled back in court Wednesday morning, but it has been learned the hearing has been canceled.
A judge was expected to give his decision on whether or not to remove the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office from the trial, but that ruling will come at a later date.
Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, is charged with the 2010 murder of Terry Boyd.
Back in February, his attorneys asked the judge to remove the DA's office from the case.
Defense attorney Jason Williams said his client is being punished by District Attorney Hillar Moore because he is mentioned in one of the rapper's songs.
"The more they hear, the more they're going to see that Torrence Hatch is innocent of the crime that Hillar Moore has charged him with," said Williams.
Moore said that's simply not true.
"I have no care whatsoever about him or his music," Moore stated. "He is a defendant and that's all."
