SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A Las Vegas man has been charged with taking part in the 2006 murder of the leader of an organization with criminal ties in San Francisco's Chinatown.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/2jc2huq ) Wen Bing Lei was indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of murder in the death of Allen Leung during racketeering activity.

Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow was convicted last year and sentenced to life in prison in Leung's killing and on racketeering charges. He has denied involvement in the killing.

Leung led a community organization that included members who dealt drugs and committed other crimes. A businessman, Leung had been appointed to city economic task forces by two San Francisco mayors. He was killed in his store by a masked gunman in February 2006.
