ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Prosecutors say they will fight to keep the suspects charged with murdering an Albany man during a gang initiation behind bars. 

Some of the suspects are asking for bond hearings. Seven members of the Black Gangsta Disciples, including accused gang leader 33-year-old Greg Marshall are charged with beating 32-year-old Reginald Richardson to death during a gang initiation June 23rd.
