ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis drug gang enforcer whom prosecutors described as a “stone-cold-killer” has been convicted of three federal crimes.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that jurors found 54-year-old Donald “O.G.” Stewart guilty Wednesday of gun crimes related to the 2010 deaths of Michael McGill and Darrion Williams Jr., as well as conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. He was acquitted on one gun charge linked to the 2009 death of Ronald James.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Reilly told jurors that Stewart was a drug dealer and “stone-cold killer” who was recruited by a major drug dealer who was in a war with a rival. Reilly said Stewart sometimes played the role of “shooter” and sometimes planned the attacks.

Stewart’s lawyer, John Stobbs, said they were disappointed and would appeal.
