DJ Megatron killer jailed

KILLED: DJ Megatron

THE MAN who fatally shot 106 & Park’s DJ Megatron during a robbery almost two years ago has been sentenced to 21 years in prison.

According to BET William Williams, 22, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and accepted a deal to avoid a 25-year jail term.

Megatron, real name Corey McGriff, rose to fame as the resident DJ on popular music video countdown show 106 & Park.

Mario Gallucci, Williams’ lawyer reportedly said: “After careful reflection and thought, my client decided this was in his best interest.”

Williams' alleged accomplice, Richard Cromwell, was also charged in the shooting and is due in court on Feb. 27.
