Jimmy Henchman Charged in Murder Case

Prosecutors allege the music executive ordered the hit on a 50 Cent associate.

Published February 27, 2012

Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond, the disgraced music executive and manager to the stars who was arrested last year for his involvement with a bicoastal cocaine syndicate, just had a potentially even more serious charge land on his lap. The Czar Entertainment founder has officially been charged with ordering the murder of 50 Cent associate Lowell "Lodi Mack" Fletcher.

Rosemond, who had been the manager of Game, Sean Kingston and Brandy, was suspected of ordering two of his known associates, Rodney Johnson and Brian McLeod, to commit the murder. Johnson and McLeod were arrested for the killing last summer. Fletcher had been convicted of assaulting Rosemond's 14-year-old son and had just been released from jail when he was gunned down in the Bronx in 2009.

The embattled Rosemond is already serving time in a Brooklyn federal prison for earlier charges related to the drug ring. Prosecutors accuse the former mogul of running a $10 million a year cocaine operation right out of his offices at Interscope. Prior to his capture and arrest last June, Rosemond went on the run as a fugitive from the law for over a month.
