‘Black Muslim Bakery’ founder guilty in editor’s slaying
OAKLAND — A former Oakland community group leader has been found guilty of ordering the murders of a journalist and two other men.
Jurors on Thursday found former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV and co-defendant Antoine Mackey guilty of murder in the shooting death of Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey, 57, in August 2007.
Prosecutors argued that Bey felt so desperate to protect the legacy of the bakery that promoted self-empowerment for decades that he ordered Mr. Bailey killed as he worked on a story about the organization’s troubled finances.
Bey also was convicted in the July 2007 killings of Odell Roberson Jr., 31, and Michael Wills, 36. Mackey was convicted of killing Wills, but the jury deadlocked on murder charges against him in the death of Roberson.

CHICAGO — Federal prosecutors contend a former prison chaplain plotted with convicted Chicago mobster Frank Calabrese Sr. to recover a violin reportedly hidden in a Wisconsin house.
Catholic Priest Eugene Klein, 62, of Springfield, Mo., was indicted late Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States and attempting to prevent seizure of Calabrese’s property. The charges were announced Thursday by the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago.
Prosecutors say Father Klein and two others planned to pose as interested buyers of the Williams Bay, Wis., home. One would distract the real estate agent while the others searched for the violin, reportedly worth millions.
