The family of 19-year-old Kenneth Abom suspects the rapper injured their son on the head during a scuffle at his house last week.

Complications from the injury might have led to the boy’s death, the parents suspect.

But speaking to KTN, the rapper denied the allegations, that he had contributed to Kenneth’s death.

Octopizzo isn’t the only celeb to have allegations of murder lobbed at him, below is a list of celebs who have suffered the same fate. They are:

Mark Wahlberg

The famous Hollywood star was charged with attempted murder when he was 16 years old. Wahlberg struck two Vietnamese men with various objects while yelling a racial epithet, leaving one man blind in one eye. He ultimately pled guilty to assault and served 45 days in prison.

Snoop Dogg

The star who loves weed like a fat baby loves cake has also faced his own legal issues. In 1993, he along with his bodyguard were charged with murder for the shooting death of Phillip Woldemariam, a rival gang member.

Snoop was finally acquitted of the charges in 1996.

Louis Otieno

The former host was once the most popular personality on television, in an illustrious career that would sadly end, ignominiously. Some might say it ended after he was accused of the murder of Careen Chepchumba.

Mr Otieno denied killing Ms Careen or ever having a romantic affair with her. He, however, admitted that she had been his friend.

O.J. Simpson

The former American football player tarnished a glorious sporting legacy when he was charged with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Lyle Goldman. After a much-publicized trial, Simpson was found not guilty in 1995.
