Latin King gang members on trial for almost a dozen crimes

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In Lubbock today two gang members of the Almighty Latin Kings and Queens Nation sat in federal court, charged for several crimes including three capital murders.

Texas leader for the Latin King's Jose Nava, aka Chino, and gang member James Cole are the only two of seventeen gang members and associates arrested that haven't pleaded guilty to several crimes. Documents outline 11 indictments including narcotics and weapon trafficking, and capital murder charges. Nava is indicted on all 11 counts and Cole is charged with eight.

During trial, jurors listened to four witnesses give detailed information on the Latin King's extensive cocaine and marijuana drug ring here in Lubbock and West Texas. Surveillance video of a Latin King meeting with Nava and gang leaders from Chicago was also played by prosecutors. Several pieces of evidence like photos and gang paraphernalia were also presented.

Court will continue tomorrow.
