A Baltimore City Circuit Court judge sentenced a Bloods gang leader to life plus 20 years for his role in the kidnapping and fatal shooting of a rival gang leader three years ago.

Dajuan Marshall, leader of the Spider Gang, a subset of the Bounty Hunter Bloods in Baltimore, was convicted earlier this month of first-degree murder in the slaying in of Kenneth Jones. Jones was the leader of the Pasadena Denver Lanes Bloods gang in Baltimore.

Marshall and an accomplice, who was also convicted this month, kidnapped Jones at gunpoint in June 2008 in downtown Baltimore, and shoved him into the trunk of a car. Jones was shot multiple times in the head with a .45 caliber handgun, and police found his body in the trunk of the car less than an hour later in Northwest Baltimore.
