Two Convicted in Killing of Gang Rival

MIAMI (AP) -- Two South Florida men have been convicted of killing a supposed rival drug dealer and a 10-month-old baby.
A Miami-Dade jury found Jimmie L. Bowen guilty Wednesday of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Bernard M. Jones was convicted of one count of first degree-murder.
Authorities say then-16-year-old Bowen walked up to four men playing dominoes in front of a house in December 2008 and fatally shot 27-year-old Pierre Roche, who had been encroaching on the territory of the "New Moneii" gang. Bowen also wounded Christopher Smith and then turned his gun on the baby, Derrick Days Jr., who was sitting on his father's lap. The Miami Herald reports that the father was not wounded, but the child later died at a hospital.
Jones, then 17, acted as Bowen's get-away driver.
