BOSTON — Two men convicted in the killing of a rival gang member as he shoveled snow in Boston for a nonprofit that steers young people away from crime are scheduled to be sentenced.

Donte Henley and Josiah Zachery face life in prison with the possibility of parole when they are sentenced Monday for the February 2015 shooting of 21-year-old Kenny Lamour. They were convicted Thursday of second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say the 26-year-old Henley and Lamour were on a snow shoveling crew overseen by Roca Inc. Although the men were in rival gangs, they assured their supervisor they could work together peacefully.

They say Henley texted the 20-year-old Zachery, provided a description of Lamour and told him to bring a gun to the work site. Henley shot Lamour in the head.
