CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Prosecutors in North Carolina have shown jurors photos of the bodies a couple they say was killed in retaliation by a gang in their South Carolina home.

Randall Hankins, Nana Adoma and Ahkeem McDonald are on trial in federal court for the deaths of Doug and Debbie London at their home near Lake Wylie, South Carolina, in October 2014.

The Charlotte Observer reports jurors were first shown a video of Doug London talking to investigators about how he shot Jamell Cureton who was trying to rob his Charlotte mattress store at gunpoint five months before the killings.

Authorities say the wounded robber was a gang member who ordered the couple killed. Cureton pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty.

Prosecutors say the three defendants all conspired to kill the couple.
