Carrie Wood, age 38, of New Caney has plead guilty today in a Beaumont federal court after she was charged with the aid of racketeering after she and Terry Stalsby and April Flanagan cleaned up after a double murder and also provided a get away car and secured the murder weapon for Brent Stalsby a member of the Aryan Brotherhood.
According to the indictment, the ABT is a powerful race-based state-wide organization that operates inside and outside of state and federal prisons throughout Texas and the United States. The ABT was established in the early 1980’s within the Texas prison system. It modeled itself after and adopted many of the precepts and writings of the Aryan Brotherhood, a California-based prison gang that was formed in the California prison system during the 1960’s. According to the indictment, previously the ABT was primarily concerned with the protection of white inmates and white supremacy/separatism. Over time, the ABT has expanded its focus more towards a criminal enterprise to include illegal activities for profit.
The ABT enforces its rules and promotes discipline among its members, prospects and associates through murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to murder, assault, robbery and threats against those who violate the rules or pose a threat to the enterprise. Members, and oftentimes associates, are required to follow the orders of higher-ranking members, often referred to as a “direct orders.”
The indictment alleges that a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, David Clyde Mitchamore Jr., aka “Super Dave,” and his girlfriend, Christie Rochelle Brown, were murdered by Charles Cameron Frazier, aka “Mojo,” and Brent Nicholas Stalsby, aka “Twist,” because Mitchamore failed to repay an outstanding debt he allegedly owed to Carl Richard Carver, an alleged general in the Aryan Brotherhood. The indictment alleges that after Mitchamore was killed, Frazier and Stalsby murdered Brown because they did not want to leave any witnesses to Mitchamore’s killing. The bodies of Mitchamore and Brown were discovered near Etoile in Nacogdoches County on Aug. 10, 2007.
