Dossie Mann told police he and another man killed 25-year-old Jeffrey Anderson after an alleged gang leader ordered the hit from prison. Now, Mann, also accused of gang activity, is facing 10 charges related to Anderson's death.

The Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office expects to bring their case against Mann next week.

Mann and Gordon Anthony Evans were charged in connection with Anderson's death in November 2016, while Evans was serving a 20-year sentence in Hancock State Prison.

According to police, Evans ordered Mann and Durell Leeshon Lewis to kill Anderson. Lewis was later arrested and also charged with murder in connection with the killing.

Anderson was held underwater in a bathtub for an extended period of time before being shot twice in the back of the head at a Lawrenceville home, police said at the time of the arrests. The killing was ordered because of a $500 debt, police testified.

Evans was a powerful Bloods gang leader, and Mann and Lewis were members of the gang, police said at the time of the arrests.

Mann is facing three charges of felony murder, along with one charge each of malice murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, aggravated battery, participation in gang activity and criminal damage to property.
