Three men, convicted members of a Bloods gang subset, are set to be sentenced Thursday in DeKalb County for their roles in the executions of two young women in 2014.
Shaniqua Camacho, 21, and Sonia Williams, 20, died in May 2014 after Williams allegedly called the gang’s leader an insulting name, prosecutors have said. The purported leader, Malcom “Dot” Brown, hasn’t yet been to trial, but co-defendants Demetre Mason, Frankland Henderson and Michael Jenkins were convicted in April.

Mason and Henderson were convicted of murder, gang activity and other charges, Jenkins of aggravated assault and gang activity.
Prosecutors have said the trio helped in the murders after Brown ordered them to. In addition to hurt feelings over the insult, prosecutors have argued that Brown may have been worried that Williams would reveal his location to rival gangs. The women were beaten and chased down when they fled an apartment in the Snapfinger area.
Under Georgia law, the killers face at a minimum life in prison. The only question would be if they are ever eligible for parole. Jenkins faces six to 35 years.
The hearing is at 8:30 a.m. before Judge Linda Hunter in the downtown Decatur courthouse.
