The men pleaded guilty in connection with the November 2004 death of Wayne Gerald Friday. Members of the Native Syndicate, a street gang in Regina, beat Friday, shot him and dumped his body on a First Nations reserve.

A fourth man, Quinton Bitternose, was convicted of first-degree murder. He is appealing.
