CHICAGO | Charges were filed this week in a nearly 14-year-old homicide where a man was killed and dumped in Gary, officials said.

Darryl Green, 28, was kidnapped at gunpoint June 18, 1999, from his Broadview electronics store, according to a release from the Cook County state's attorney's office. 

Dimeyon Cole, 30, of Chicago, Kevin Mitchell, 46, of Jeffersonville, Ind., Menard McAfee, 38, and Raymond Winters, 46, were charged with first-degree murder. McAfee and Winters are in state prison on unrelated charges.

Officials said the four men kidnapped Green and made several ransom telephone calls to his brother demanding money. The men told him to make funeral arrangements for the brother, officials said.

The men were later seen in the area of 20th Place and Grant Street in Gary carrying a body into the woods and then gunshots were heard, according to the release. Gary police later found Green, who died from three gunshot wounds to his head.

According to the release, Green's DNA was found in a vehicle belonging to Mitchell and phone records of the ransom calls were traced to Winters.

The four men charged are former or current alleged members of the Black Souls and the Vice Lords street gangs.
