CLEVELAND (AP) - A jury in Cleveland has convicted a Heartless Felons gang leader of murder and other charges.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County jury deliberated for five days before convicting Julius Webster of 11 of the 17 charges filed against him in connection with a slaying in Cleveland and a robbery in Canton.

The 29-year-old Webster faces 50 years in prison when he’s sentenced March 10. He has been in and out of Ohio prisons for the past decade.

In a separate proceeding, Common Pleas Judge Michael Astrab found Webster guilty of a gang charge for his leadership role in the Heartless Felons, which for years has sought to control Cleveland streets and state prisons, according to The Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/193cZdg ) newspaper.

The trial lasted nearly three weeks.
