Stevie Wonder’s nephew Alpha Lorenzo Walker and his girlfriend Tamara Eileen Diaz were charged with extortion, after police detectives say, they were arrested for trying to sell what they said was embarrassing information about Stevie Wonder.
The duo, Alpha Lorenzo Walker and his girlfriend Tamara Eileen Diaz, have been jailed since their arrest on May 2.
Both have pleaded not guilty and are scheduled to appear in court on May 16 for a hearing in which a judge will decide whether there is enough evidence for them to stand trial.
According to a felony complaint, Walker and Diaz attempted to obtain money from Grammy-winning musician Stevie Wonder, who is identified by his birth name, Steveland Morris.
An email message sent to Stevie Wonder's studio was not immediately returned yesterday.
