Meeting of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation

19:52 |

Federal surveillance footage captured one of the defendants, Jose Robledo Nava, among many other Latin Kings at a statewide meeting of the gang's leaders.Nava and James Johnathan Cole are charged with two counts of using a gun to commit murder during and in retaliation to a drug trafficking crime.
They are also charged with conspiracy to sell at least 5 kilograms of cocaine and at least 100 kilograms of marijuana.
Both men face up to life in federal prison if convicted.
Nava and Cole are accused of gunning down two people in a retaliatory drive-by against a rival street gang in May 2008 in Big Spring.
According to an indictment filed in January that supersedes previous indictments, Nava and Cole used an AK-47-style rifle to kill Valerie Garcia and Michael Cardona.
Several witnesses testified Wednesday, including agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Two former Latin Kings also testified, fingering Nava in several photos and surveillance videos and implicating him in numerous gun and drug deals.
The jury saw video of Nava at the meeting of Texas Latin King leaders, during which national leaders from Chicago warned the group about increasing pressure from law enforcement.One leader's words about federal agents cracking down on the gang were somehow recorded despite the group's insistence on strip-searching members and checking them for wires.Testimony is scheduled to resume today in federal court.
