Gang leader indicted in Oakland slayings

A top-ranking member of the Nuestra Familia prison gang has been indicted by a federal grand jury on murder, conspiracy and racketeering charges in connection with the stabbing deaths of two people found in a burning Oakland apartment.

Henry Cervantes, 48, was charged with two counts of murder in aid of racketeering in the slayings of Johnny Gilbert Navaerette, a 73-year-old paroled killer, and Renee Washington, 56. Cervantes had previously been charged by Alameda County prosecutors.

The bodies of Navaerette and Washington were found in a second-floor apartment on the 3100 block of Coolidge Avenue in Oakland early Sept. 11, 2011, after firefighters doused a blaze there.

Autopsies determined that both had been stabbed to death.

Cervantes allegedly enlisted Shane Bowman and Jaime Cervantes, said to be gang members, to destroy evidence at the murder scene, according to the indictment handed down earlier this month in U.S. District Court in Oakland.

Bowman, Jaime Cervantes and a third alleged gang associate, Richard Martinez, set fire to the apartment "to destroy evidence from the double murder committed the previous day by Henry Cervantes," said the indictment, which names seven other defendants……Gang leader indicted in Oakland slayings - SFGate
