A former member of a Clarendon-based gang has pleaded guilty for his roles in 11 murders in the parish. 

Travis Gilman, 38, was convicted on a 15-count indictment in the Home Circuit Court a short while ago.

The murders date back to 2017.

The indictment:
Three counts - murder
Five counts -  conspiracy to murder
Three counts - accessory after the fact to murder
One count - accessory before the fact to murder
One count - accessory to wounding with intent
One count - illegal possession of a firearm
One count - illegal possession of ammunition

The confessed killer was sentenced by High Court Judge Leighton Pusey to 210 years in prison for the offences.

However, the sentences are to run at the same time and so he will be eligible for parole after 25 years in prison.
