Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner didn't mix words when he talked about the murder convictions of Mykal and Malik Derry.

“The greater Atlantic City region is far safer knowing that the Derry brothers will be incarcerated for life, whether in State or Federal prison.  I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies responsible for assisting in bringing them to justice.”

A jury late Wednesday convicted the brothers of Murder and Conspiracy to Commit Murder in the 2013 shooting death of Tyquinn James, 25, of Atlantic City.

According to Tyner, "the Derry brothers are facing 30 years to life in New Jersey State Prison and are currently in custody at the Atlantic County Justice Facility."
