Lincoln Gang Members Found Guilty in Double Murder

(7-22-14) Just over a year ago, Richard McLaughlin and Tyler Thornburg, members of the True Blue Soldiers gang in Lincoln, didn't have anything to do, so when David Mueller walked by, they decided to "find some work," which was gang lingo for committing a crime. Thornburg hit Mueller in the head with a blue baseball bat and took his wallet.  Hours later, the gang spotted Shane Walton at 38th and L streets. This time, McLaughlin used the bat the beat Walton to death. Both men pleaded no contest to manslaughter and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony for beating Walton and Mueller to death on June 29th, 2013. Both men have been found guilty of their random act of violence. They will be sentenced August 29th.
