A man named Matthew David Hughes broke into Eminem’s suburban Detroit home. Moreover, he told Eminem he had come ‘to kill him’.
The court hearing took place on September 9. Here a police officer testified that an intruder smashed a window and trespassed the rapper’s home in April. The incident occurred whilst the rapper was self-quarantining under Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order.
They further said Hughes entered by breaking a glass back door with a pavement stone, setting off the alarm system. He was confronted by Marshall Mathers, professionally known as Eminem, in the living room who had presumed it was his nephew.
A police officer Adam Hackstock,
When Mr. Mathers asked him why he was there, he was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him.
Officer Hackstock further added that Hughes did not possess or carry any sort of weapon during the breaking and entering. The officer said he had spoken with the rapper for more than an hour after Hughes had been detained.
On the contrary, Richard Glanda i.e. Matthew David Hughes’ attorney told Fox News that this testimony was a lie. In fact, he said, the two never even came face to face during the break-in.
I’m not sure where [the officer’s statement] came from. There was no physical contact between the two in the house.
The Court has Decided to Move Forward
The judge in charge of the case, Judge Jacob Michael Femminineo Jr., however, has supposedly found sufficient evidence to proceed further. Consequently, he has scheduled a prosecution on September 28. The final verdict will be decided then.
Hughes is charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of a building. Moreover, the Judge has found enough evidence to send him to trial.
Upon conviction, according to the law, he can face up to 20 years in prison for a home-invasion conviction. Whilst for malicious destruction, he can be incarcerated for up to 5 years.
