Two Gang Members on Trial for Brownsville Murders

The two teenage defendants, members of the New Money Boys gang, were arrested five days after the shooting and face two counts of murder. Jimmie L. Bowen, who was 16 at the time, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder. Bernard M. Jones, who was 17 at the time, accused of being behind the wheel of the Dodge Ram that sped from the scene, faces two counts of felony murder, one of attempted felony murder and one of accessory after the fact. Before the incident, Bowen allegedly challenged any gang members who wanted to step up their status in the gang, and Jones eagerly responded. They were planning to kill Pierre Roche who Miami-Dade police said was a member of a rival gang. Two people, the 27-year-old Roche and baby Derrick, are dead. The two victims both have parents that work for the Miami Police Department. For more information go to the Miami Herald.
