‘ Gang Members of Three Feuding Harlem Gangs Arrested ‘

#AceNewsServices – NEW YORK (Harlem) – June 04 – More than 100 members of three feuding gangs were arrested in Harlem on Wednesday in what was described as the largest indictment of gang members in New York City’s history, Reuters reported.

The arrests and indictments were part of a conspiracy investigation that stemmed from the 2011 murder of Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy, an 18-year-old high-school basketball star, according to sources.

Members of one gang are reportedly facing conspiracy charges. Tyshawn Brockington, 24, and Robert Cartagena, 23, were convicted for Murphy’s murder and sentenced to between 25 years and life in prison.

The gangs are accused of two homicides, 19 non-fatal shootings and about 50 other shooting incidents, according to a brief announcement from the Manhattan district attorney.

Further details were expected to be announced at a news conference on Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors have said the murder of Murphy, a nationally ranked point guard nicknamed “Chicken,” was the most widely reported casualty of an often violent feud between gangs from neighbouring public apartment buildings in Harlem.

Murphy was shot three times, in her wrist, hip and chest, at about 4 a.m. in a hallway of her Grant Houses apartment building on Sept. 11, 2011. Her murder came after a long evening of fighting between the gangs, prosecutors’ said at the time.

Tyshawn Brockington, 24, and Robert Cartagena, 23, who were associated with a gang in the Manhattanville Houses project, were convicted for Murphy’s murder and sentenced to between 25 years and life in prison.

China: “Former Doctor is Convicted of Baby Trafficking”

#AceWorldNews says a Chinese court on Tuesday convicted a former obstetrician of abducting newborn babies and gave her a suspended death sentence. The intermediate court in Weinan city said Zhang Shuxia sold seven children in the northern province of Shaanxi, AFP reported. The woman had reportedly tricked parents into giving up their babies by telling them the newborns were sick or had died. The penalty is likely to be commuted to life imprisonment. Tens of thousands of children are believed to be stolen each year in China.
