CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Three gang members from North Carolina have been found guilty for their roles in killing a couple in retaliation in their South Carolina home

Federal prosecutors said a jury returned guilty verdicts for racketeering Friday against Randall Hankins, Nana Adoma and Ahkeem McDonald.

Authorities say the three were in a gang that ordered the killing of Doug and Debbie London at their home near Lake Wylie, South Carolina, in October 2014.

Doug London had shot gang member Jamell Cureton as he tried to rob his Charlotte mattress store at gunpoint five months before the killings.

Authorities say the wounded robber was a gang member who ordered the couple killed. Cureton pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty.

All three defendants could face life in prison when they are sentenced later.
