Remy Ma’s Son Arrested and Charged for Murder


The son of American rapper Remy Ma’s has been arrested and charged for the June 2021 murder of a man in Queens.

23-year-old Jayson Scott has been charged with first-degree murder in relation to the death of 47-year-old Darius Guillebeaux. It is reported that Guillebeaux was shot following a dispute on June 7, 2021. He was rushed to the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Another person, 22-year-old Richard Swygert, has also been charged.

In addition to first-degree murder, Scott has been charged with second-degree murder, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, and first-degree reckless endangerment. Swygert only faces one murder charge.
ABC News reports that Guillebeaux had been indicted by the New York attorney general just eight months before the shooting as part of a large-scale drug operation. The investigation, dubbed “Operation Heat Wave,” resulted in the arrests of 54 people accused of trafficking heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone to be sold in upstate Jefferson County.
