Murder charges added in Native Mob case

MINNEAPOLIS – A complex case alleging violence, drugs and retaliation by the Native Mob gang now includes accusations of murder.

A superseding indictment, filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, also updates the case file with additional charges against purported gang members from Bemidji, Cass Lake and the surrounding area.

Prosecutors filed additional charges late last week against Shawn Michael Martinez, also known as Tinez, for murder, murder in aid of racketeering, retaliation against a witness by murder and witness tampering.

He is accused of killing fellow Native Mob member Jeremee Kraskey on Feb. 26, 2011.
