MS-13 Gang Members Get 27 Years in Prison for MD Murders

February 17, 2020

Two MS-13 gang members were each sentenced to 27 years in prison for their involvement in murders, attempted murder, assaults, and drug dealing in Maryland, reports Breitbart News.

Jose Garcia, 28, and Carlos Diaz, 29, were each involved in a murder carried out by MS-13. Garcia admitted to attacking a victim with machetes and knives in March 2017 alongside other gang members. The victim was beheaded, dismembered, his heart was ripped out of his body, and he was buried in a pre-dug grave. Prosecutors said Garcia was involved with a plot to kill a suspected rival gang member, but the victim survived.

In April 2017, Diaz and other MS-13 members murdered another rival gang member with machetes and dismembered him, throwing him in a pre-dug grave.

The original case brought by the Justice Department saw the indictment of 24 MS-13 gang members in total in Maryland — all for their involvement in violent racketeering conspiracy, including murder.
