Aryan Brotherhood gangster gets life in prison

23:46 |


member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for a May 2008 homicide in Atascosa County. Authorities said Jim Flint McIntyre of Baytown, known as “Q-Ball,” 43, pleaded guilty Feb. 11 to committing a violent crime in aid of racketeering activity and admitted that he participated in the murder of Mark Davis Byrd Sr. A judge also sentenced McIntyre to a concurrent prison term of 15 years for a weapons offense he pleaded guilty to in the Eastern District of Texas. McIntyre and Michael Dewayne Smith of Houston, nicknamed “Bucky,” killed Byrd, a prospective member of the brotherhood, a white supremacist gang that operates at state and federal prisons nationwide, according to court records. The hit was ordered by gang leader Frank Lavelle Urbish Jr. of Pasadena, aka “Thumper,” as punishment because Byrd apparently stole drugs he had been ordered to deliver to a customer on behalf of the organization, court records state. Byrd's body was discovered near Pleasanton on May 4, 2008. Smith, 30 pleaded guilty May 11 to murder and conspiracy to commit murder in Byrd's death. Urbish, 39, pleaded guilty to the same charges in June, authorities said. Urbish and Smith are both facing life in prison. Sentencing for Urbish is slated for February, while sentencing for Smith is scheduled for March.
