Swedish hip-hop artist charged with murder of ex-Twin Cities jazz musician
Swedish hip-hop artist David Moses Jassy was charged with murder after he allegedly ran over a 55-year-old former Twin Cities musician who slapped his car in California, according to the Associated Press.
Jassy, 34, is also known as Dave Monopoly. He was first charged last week with assault, battery and leaving the scene of an accident, but the murder charge was added Tuesday.
The victim, John Osnes, lived in the Twin Cities in the '70s and '80s and had been living in Los Angeles for two years. He was a jazz pianist.

Prosecutors say the victim, John Osnes, formerly of the Twin Cities, slapped Jassy's rented SUV on Nov. 23 when it crept into his crosswalk. Jassy allegedly got out of his car, punched the victim and kicked him in the head, then ran over him with his car as he left. Jassy was arrested the next day and remains jailed on $1 million bail.
