Oakland Post Editor’s Murder Trial: ‘Justice Has Finally Been Done’

By: Thomas Peele | The Oakland Tribune

OAKLAND — Nearly four years after Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey was gunned down on his morning walk to work, a jury convicted the former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery of murder for ordering the journalist’s assassination.

Yusuf Bey IV — who a prosecutor said terrorized Oakland — will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for sending two followers to kill Bailey after learning the journalist was writing a story about financial problems and inner strife at the bakery.

Bey IV, 25, also was convicted of ordering the deaths of two other men, Odell Roberson and Michael Wills, in summer 2007.
