Six United Blood Nation (UBN or Bloods) gang members have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to participate in racketeering, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Briana Johnson, 19, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity (RICO) and murder in aid of racketeering charges, for her involvement in the murders of Doug and Deborah London.
Prosecutors say the Londons' were gunned down at their Lake Wylie home in 2014 to keep Doug from testifying against bloods gang members in a robbery case.
The five defendants that pleaded guilty to RICO conspiracy Tuesday are David Fudge, 22, of Pineville, N.C.; Daquan Everett, 21, of Charlotte; Ibn Kornegay, 36, of Greenville, N.C.; Centrilia Leach, 31, of Charlotte; and Rahkeem McDonald, 22, of Charlotte.
Prosecutors say 36-year-old Ibn Kornegay of Greenville, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to murder in the aid of racketeering. Kornegay was identified as a top leader of the Bloods in North Carolina.
Fudge and McDonald also pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in aid of racketeering in connection with the October 2014 murders of Doug and Debbie London.
All six defendants are currently in federal custody. They'll be sentenced at a later date. The maximum penalty for murder in aid of racketeering is death or life in prison.
All the charges against the remaining six gang defendants named in the second superseding indictment are still pending, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
