Michigan rapper Supa Emcee is facing charges after authorities say he stabbed his wife to death over the weekend in Westland, according to reports.
Supa Emcee, whose real name is Jimmie Brown, is accused of stabbing Kelly Mays 17 times inside a Westland apartment in the 36000 block of McKinney Drive on Sunday. Brown was arraigned Wednesday on a first-degree murder charge and denied bond.
Kelly and Brown were separated at the beginning of the year, but kept in touch. Kelly’s daughter found her mother’s body when she went to the apartment and felt like something was off. That’s when she discovered her mother’s body.
“I touched her foot, and it was cold,” Celeste Mays said. “I have nightmares about it, so every time I fall asleep, I see it.”
Brown turned himself into Westland police within hours of the murder.
The couple had been together for 13 years, with violence a factor in their relationship. Celeste and her sister had begged the two to leave each other time after time.
The rapper is known for his appearance in Eminem’s movie “8 Mile.”
