Five alleged members of the UN Gang are facing various sentences of 11 to 14 years in prison for conspiracy to murder the three Bacon brothers and other Red Scorpions gang members in 2008 and 2009.

On Wednesday, the judge in the case said she would reserve her final sentencing decision until Monday, but said she'll accept the joint submission of the Crown and defence recommending the various sentences.

The five men — Barzan Tilli-Cholli, Yong Sung John Lee, Dilun Heng, Karwan Ahmet Saed and Ion Kroitoru — pleaded guilty earlier this week to conspiring to kill Jonathan, Jamie and Jarrod Bacon and their associates at the height of a gang war in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
