The former leader of an Oakland community group and an associate were indicted on three first-degree murder counts Wednesday involving the killing of a journalist investigating the group and two other deaths.

The former leader of the now-defunct Your Black Muslim Bakery group, Yusuf Bey IV, 23, was accused of ordering the shooting death of Oakland Post Editor Chauncey Bailey as he walked to work.

Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Chris Lamiero said Antoine Mackey, 23, was also accused in connection with the three murders.

The bakery group was founded to provide support and as a haven for Oakland’s poor but ran into financial and other problems. Bailey had been investigating the group’s finances.

The indictment came after a former bakery handyman, Devaughndre Broussard, testified. Broussard, 21, faced a murder charge in Bailey’s killing and his attorney, LeRue Grim, said his client agreed to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter in Bailey’s death and an earlier killing in return for a sentence of no more than 25 years in prison.

Broussard told prosecutors that he and another bakery follower carried out the three slayings because Bey, the son of the bakery’s late founder, promised to reward them financially if they did, Grim said.

Lamiero declined comment on any plea agreements.

Bey was arrested a day after Bailey’s death in an unrelated kidnapping and torture case and remained jailed in that case. His lawyer, Anne Beles, said she had not been formally notified of the indictments Wednesday.

Beles said: “All charges will be fought vigorously.”

Bey and Mackey were expected in court May 6. Broussard’s next court date was scheduled for May 7.
