3 latin king gang members convicted in violent assault

18:28 |

Three members of one of the largest street gangs in the country, the Latin Kings, have been convicted for their part in a violent assault.  A jury found Marshall Chandler guilty of kidnapping, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault for an attack on Zachariah Henley in October of 2011 in Madison. Chandler will be sentenced in August.  Corey Wilson pled to aggravated assault and received a 20-year sentence with seven suspended. As part of his plea, Wilson agreed to testify against Chandler.  The leader of the Latin Kings for central Mississippi, Charles Higgins, pled guilty just days before his trial was set to begin. He was sentenced to serve 30 years as an habitual offender for kidnapping.  The investigation began on October 17, 2011, when Zachariah Henley was attacked by the three gang members while sleeping in his car outside of his girlfriend's residence in Madison.  One of the attackers managed to reach his arm into the backdoor of the car and unlock it while Henley slept. They drug him out of the car, bound his hands and legs with packing tape and assaulted him.  The trio put Henley in the back of a truck and drove to a desolate area in Rankin County where they stripped Henley naked and held him at knife point. Henley was then viciously beaten until he was unconscious.  The three defendants left the scene presuming Henley was dead.
