State rests in Warlocks motorcycle gang member's murder trial

THUMPERRRR's picture


State prosecutors have rested their case against David Maloney, the first of four men charged with shooting and killing three members of the Warlocks motorcycle gang at a VFW hall in Winter Springs in 2012.

Maloney is charged with murder for the deadly shooting at a VFW Post 5405.

Prosecutors say Maloney had been kicked out of the Florida Warlocks and started his own gang -- the Philly Warlocks -- before the two gangs came face-to-face at a charity motorcycle ride on Sept. 30, 2012, when the gunfire erupted.

The state said Maloney brought his group to the hall to start a fight and left after killing three men.

But the defense will try to build a case around the idea that the Florida Warlocks were targeting Maloney, and he was protecting himself.

The trial is expected to last the rest of the week.

Three other suspects -- Victor Amaro, Robert W. Eckert and Paul Smith -- will stand trial in the weeks to follow.
