FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- A former Haitian gang enforcer has been convicted of killing three people in southwest Florida.

Local media outlets say 35-year-old Wesnel Isaac was found guilty Friday of three counts of second-degree murder and other charges. He faces life in prison at his Feb. 13 sentencing.

Authorities say Isaac, Loubert Jules, Peter Belvilus and George Guerrier went to a Bonita Springs home in 2007 planning retribution against drug dealers who robbed Jules. The group didn't find the robbers but abducted three men who were there: Willard Graham, Scott Highfill and Robert Barckley. Their bodies were later found in a vehicle in Lehigh Acres.

Jules was sentenced to life in prison in 2010. Belvilus and Guerrier received eight years each in exchange for testifying against Jules. Isaac had fled to Haiti but was arrested there in 2014.
