Money Mafia Gang Leader Gets 30 Years for Murder

Crestview, Fla. - A gang leader accused of leading a plot to kill a man he suspected to be an informant was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday. 

Marvin Wilkins entered a plea to second degree murder, racketeering, and conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Prosecutors say that between August 2014 and July 2015, Wilkins, as the head of the “Money Mafia”, sold cannabis, committed batteries, assaults, and tampered with evidence. On January 20, 2015, the Defendant believed a member of the “Money Mafia” was leaking information to individuals in Crestview.

Wilkins began attempting to determine the member of the group who was leaking information. Eventually, he sent Bernard Nunnally, Erich Justice, and Nijajuan Russell to Crestview to pick up Mark Williams and bring him to Okaloosa Island.

"Wilkins told them to bring Williams back to the hotel room, but if you can’t, do what you have to do," prosecutors wrote in a news release. 

On the way from Crestview to Okaloosa Island, Nunnally pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and shot Mark Williams. Russell and Justice also shot Williams.  After the shooting, Nunnally called Wilkins and stated “it’s done.”

Erich Justice, who was 17 years old at the time of the offense, has entered a plea to his involvement and was sentenced to a 25-year minimum mandatory prison sentence. Bernard Nunnally previously entered a plea and has been sentenced to 45 years in state prison. Nijajuan Russell will be scheduled for trial at a later date.
