(AP) - Prosecutors say they will file additional charges related to two slayings against a man already facing trial in a money laundering and racketeering probe centered on San Francisco's Chinatown.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Assistant U.S. Attorney William Frenzen said during a court hearing Tuesday that Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow will face additional charges in a new indictment on Thursday. He did not specify the charges.
But in a court filing on Monday, prosecutors said they would be linking Chow to soliciting the 2006 murder of Allen Leung, the previous leader of the Chinese fraternal group known as the Ghee Kung Tong, and the 2013 murder of Jim Tat Kong, a San Francisco street gang member.
Chow's attorney, Curtis Briggs, has disputed that prosecutors have any evidence linking his client to the slayings.
