A Hells Angels shooting case has been reopened in the same time frame that another Hells Angels motorcycle club member Caius Veiovis has been found guilty of murder.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, a FBI raid on the Hells Angels offered a rare look into the lives of the biker gang.
The man, whose legal name is Caius Veiovis, is an intimidating Hells Angels member because of the artificial horns implanted in his forehead. He also has a 666 tattoo on his forehead and once served years in prison for assaulting a teenager with a razor only to lick the victim’s blood. Despite this appearance, the jury faced him down and sentenced him this past week.
This past week Veiovis was convicted by a jury for the kidnapping and murder of three Massachusetts men in 2011. The victims were scheduled to testify against another Hells Angels member in an assault case and Veiovis helped kill and dismember the witnesses before they were scheduled for court.
Defense attorney James Reardon Jr. said he disagrees with the verdict and that there will be an automatic appeal. “I always have confidence in juries, and I still believe strongly in the American jury system,” he said. When the decision was reached by the jury, Veiovis yelled, “I’ll see you all in hell.”
According to WREX, in July of 2013, 14 members of the Hells Angels were arrested after they allegedly assaulted a man and kidnapped an 11-year-old child and held the victim hostage. Although they faced several charges including aggravated battery, armed robbery and kidnapping, the charges were dropped against seven of the men and the remaining seven took plea deals.
At the time Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato said, “The State’s Attorney’s Office also has to consider the safety of all witnesses when evaluating our prosecution strategies. In an effort to secure our chief witness and ensure his safety, the State’s Attorney’s Office has decided to exercise our right, in the interest of justice, to dismiss all charges at this time.” But the State Attorney reserved the right to bring charges at a later time and the seven remaining Hells Angels members have been recharged in the case.
