They are Richard Anderson and Aston Johnson, who were reportedly illegal immigrants. Prosecutors alleged that the Jamaican natives shot three men in New York in 2010, following an argument over the apportioning of proceeds from a large scale ganja trafficking network transporting the contraband across several states.

Another Jamaican man, Andrew Wright, also convicted in December in connection with the slayings, is to know his fate as he awaits sentencing on April 24.
