News: Jimmy Henchman Indicted For Murder
A few weeks back, James Rosemond a.k.a. Jimmy Henchman, was convicted of running a multi-million dollar cocaine ring. On Friday, he was indicted for murder. Jimmy is accused of orchestrating the murder of Lowell Fletcher in 2009. The murder was allegedly in retaliation for an assault on Jimmy’s son.
Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan, said Mr. Rosemond and the five other defendants had “operated like a mini-gang, allegedly committing a revenge killing, and a host of drug and firearms offenses.” A seventh man was also charged with firearms and narcotics offenses but not murder. Mr. Fletcher was shot to death on the evening of Sept. 27, 2009, near Jerome and Mount Eden Avenues in the Mount Eden neighborhood of the Bronx. Mr. Rosemond and another man hired at least two of the defendants to kill Mr. Fletcher in exchange for drugs, according to the indictment in United States District Court in Manhattan.
