  1. So one cousin, accused of attempted murder, will meet his other cousin, the partially blind accused murderer, in jail where they will try to eliminate each other!
    Such an unusual twist of fate for one family with two gangsters.

  2. What do we know about the one that was murdered in first place Melvin George ? how does he relate to the cousins ? Why was he killed by one of the cousins?

  3. The man was trying to do the job for the police, but it went straight in d i, but d police still have him! HERMIN, what is your advice for d other 1?
