JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A trial date has been for Hakeem Robinson, a Jacksonville rapper known as Ksoo, who has been charged in the 2019 murder of 16-year-old Adrian Gainer.

The June 6 trial date was set at the end of another motion hearing requested by the defense, which has insisted the prosecution has not provided all the discovery material in the other murder that Robinson is also charged.

Hakeem Robinson and his brother, Abdul Robinson Jr., and Leroy Whitaker are also indicted in the 2020 murder of Charles McCormick. There’s a fourth man charged in that murder Dominique Barner, who wasn’t indicted. The state has revealed in court filings that Barner is cooperating with prosecutors in that case.

Hakeem Robinson has pleaded not guilty to the two separate charges of first-degree murder.

The lawyer for Hakeem Robinson is still trying to get a bond set before he goes to trial. The final pretrial hearing in the Gainer case is May 31.
