BEAUMONT (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 49-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to her role in a criminal enterprise that orchestrated a killing and distributed methamphetamine in East Texas.

Vicki Stark-Fitts of the Liberty County town of Hull admitted Thursday to multiple racketeering charges. Authorities say she was associated with a gang called SWS, an acronym that often stands for “Solid Wood Soldiers” or “Separate White State.” The group is alleged to have operated in and out of jails and prisons, primarily in Texas, and has a written constitution and bylaws that outline the duties of its members.

Stark-Fitts and three others were named in a federal indictment returned Aug. 7.

Kristopher Leigh Guidry, a/k/a “Hollywood,” 28, Kenny Don Stanley, 25, of Vidor, Texas, Tanner Lynn Bourque, a/k/a “Two Shoes,” a/k/a “Hitman,” 33, of Port Arthur, Texas, each pleaded guilty to murder in aid of the racketeering activity earlier this summer.

The indictment targeted members of SWS and also the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.

Prosecutors say the four conspired to kill a fellow SWS member who earlier had shot an ABT associate. The member was killed to prevent retaliation against SWS by ABT.
