Shabazz, who was born in Paris to Malcolm’s X’s daughter Qubilah, was charged at the age of twelve in the death of his grandmother and X’s widow, Betty Shabazz, back in 1997. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and arson in connection to her death. He served four years in a juvenile detention center and was released in 2001. Psychiatrists reportedly diagnosed him at the time of the murder with being psychotic and schizophrenic.

Shabazz’s alleged arrest is unfortunately coinciding with this past weekend’s Lifetime premiere of the long-awaited drama “Betty and Coretta,” which peers into the relationship between the wives of civil rights era icons Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The film stars Mary J. Blige as Betty Shabazz and Angela Bassett as Coretta Scott King. Feb. 21 marks the commemoration of Malcolm X’s death. He was 39-years-old.
