Gang’s state chief indicted for ordering murder from prison

DECATUR, GA – The head of the Sex Money Murder Bloods in Georgia was charged today with ordering an inner-gang retaliation hit from prison that killed a 9-month-old boy.
Kenneth Eric Jackson, AKA “KG the God,” was indicted on murder and gang charges for his part in the May 2014 shooting death of KenDarious Edwards Jr.
Jackson, who is Georgia’s highest ranking member of the Bloods’ set Sex Money Murder, was incarcerated at Autry State Prison when he used a contraband mobile phone to authorize the assassination plot.
“This was a ruthless act ordered by a gang leader looking to spread fear and intimidation,” DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said. “We are in a war with gangs in DeKalb County, and too many innocent people are being hurt. This is not your county. Get out or face the consequences.”
Jackson was communicating at the time of the shooting with Sex Money Murder’s national second-in-command, Robinson Lazala, who at the time was incarcerated with the head of the set, Peter Rollock in U.S. Federal Penitentiary “Supermax” in Florence, Col.
On the night of May 10, 2014, Devin Thomas, Marco Watson and Christopher Florence forced their way into the home on Lani Farm Road where little KenDarious was with his mother, grandmother and a family friend on Jackson’s orders.
The three women retreated to a bathroom with the child where their attackers cornered them and opened fire, killing the infant.
The shooting was retaliation for the death of another gang member, who was killed by Oslushsla Smith. KenDarious was his nephew.
Along with Jackson, the indictment names Florence, Watson and Eunice English.
Jackson, Florence and Watson are charged with malice murder, felony murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault and violation of Georgia’s Street Gang and Terrorism Act.
Florence and Watson also were charged with possession of a gun by a felon.
Watson, who participated as a part of initiation into Sex Money Murder, and non-gang-member English also were charged with one count each of kidnapping and aggravated assault for intimidating a witness cooperating with police on May 28. 2014.
Devin Thomas was described as a co-conspirator and mid-level ranking member of Sex Money Murder. He pleaded guilty to murder and is serving life plus 20 years in prison.
