Gang member pleads guilty to 4 killings, will serve life

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Authorities say a Virginia gang member will spend his life in prison after pleading guilty to killing four people during a 2015 crime rampage.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia says 25-year-old Anthony Foye pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts of murder and faces a mandatory life sentence for the deaths of Al-Tariq Tynes, Vandelet Mercer, Linda Lassiter, and Wayne Davis.

Authorities say 28-year-old Alvaughn Davis helped conceal Tynes’ body and was the driver during one of the shootings. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Davis pleaded guilty Tuesday, May 23, to charges stemming from his involvement and agreed to a sentence of 45 years.

Officials say the men were member of the Nine Trey Gangsters, an East Coast gang that’s affiliated with the United Blood Nation.
