Belo of Chicago Group Do Or Die, Pleads Guilty to Murder, Gets 10 Years

doordie.jpgDarnell Smith, otherwise known as Belo Zero of the Chicago-based group Do or Die, pleaded guilty on Thursday (October 10) to second-degree murder in the 2002 shooting of Raynard “B-Dog” Pinkston. According to Chicago’s CBS 2, Smith will receive a 10-year sentence under a plea agreement. Prosecutors say the rapper shot and killed Pinkston after warning the man to stay out of a fight that was occurring at 2310 S. State. Earlier this year, Belo’s girlfriend Felicia Hamilton, was convicted of obstructing justice and communicating with witnesses after it was discovered that she offered them $1,000 to change their testimony. “I think it’s a good outcome, and I thank God for it,” said Pinkston’s brother D’Angelo Dixon. “I’m glad that guy got 10 years.” Smith will be formally sentenced on November 8.
