The suspected drug kingpin and alleged half-brother of Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul, Craig Petties, 31, who was on the U.S. Marshals Top 15 List of Most Wanted Fugitives, will possibly be facing more charges.
According to federal agents some of the defendents were hired to kill a number of individuals. One of the victims included a member of their own group, Mario Stewart, 28 who was shot in his garage while his two young boys ages three and six were upstairs in 2005. Stewart is believed to have been murdered after he agreed to help investigators and agreed to testify as a federal witness.
Craig Petties was caught earlier this month in Mexico with a female companion who is believed to have been his girlfriend along with three other individuals. Assets of Petties organization seized are valued at more than $3 million and included large amounts of cash, a string of luxury vehicles and two high-priced residences.
Defendants in this case are linked to at least 6 murder victims and other crimes and will face either life in prison or the death penalty if convicted. However, Mexican authorities refuse to send criminals back to the U.S. unless they’re assured they won’t get the death penalty.
