Attorneys for convicted gang leader file records request

Attorneys for Kevin Foster, who received a death sentence for a 1996 killing, have asked the Lee Circuit Judge to review currently exempt records that may be used in an appeal, The News-Press reported.
Attorneys for Kevin Foster, ringleader of the 1990s gang the Lords of Chaos, appeared in court this morning asking for public records for his appeal.

Foster was convicted of one count of first-degree murder in 1998 in the April 1996 killing of Riverdale High School band teacher Mark Schwebes. The jury recommended 9 to 3 that Foster be put to death and that’s where he sits 11 years later — at the Union Correctional Institute on Florida’s Death Row. Foster’s death sentence was affirmed by the Florida Supreme Court in 2000.

He and his mother Ruby Foster were also convicted of conspiring to kill Judge Isaac Anderson and witnesses in the case.
