CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A federal jury in Charlotte returned guilty verdicts against three United Blood Nation gang members on multiple charges for crimes related to the gang’s racketeering activities, including three murders.
The jury is comprised of 10 women and two men and resumed deliberating just after 9 a.m.
Randall Hankins, Nana Adoma and Ahkeem McDonald are accused of helping orchestrate the murders of Doug and Debbie London.
The couple was shot to death in their Lake Wylie home in October of 2014.
Investigators said the murders were connected to the robbery of the London's business, Mattress Warehouse. During that hold-up, Jamel Cureton, the leader of the United Blood Nation, was shot and wounded by Doug London.
