Joelon Verma has been found guilty of murdering Brittney Irving and faces life without the possibility of parole for 25 years.

The 24-year-old Irving was shot four times from behind and left in the bushes off a forest service road near Big White.

During the course of the trial, jurors were not told Verma has been tied to both the Kingpin Crew and, further back, the Independent Soldiers — both Hells Angels affiliated biker gangs.

At the time of her death, Irving had recently been arrested for dealings at a grow operation she was running and was scrambling to broker a large marijuana deal with her boyfriend, Verma.
