Already imprisoned for his conviction three weeks ago over a multimillion-dollar drug trafficking ring, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond has had an additional charge of conspiracy to murder piled on to his list of woes. The former CEO of Czar Entertainment and manager to Game and Sean Kingston was formally indicted Friday for working with five other men to kill 50 Cent associate Lowell "Lodi Mack" Fletcher in 2009.

Fletcher was gunned down on the corner of Jerome and Mount Eden Avenues in the Bronx, NY, shortly after being released from prison for assaulting Rosemond's 14-year-old son. At the time, Fletcher was affiliated with G-Unit, which was in the middle of a heated feud with Rosemond's client the Game.

"This has not been a good month for Jimmy the Henchman," Raymond W. Kelly, the New York police commissioner, said in a statement.

According to the indictment, Fletcher's murder was arranged by Rosemond and another man. Though he could not be reached for comment, last year Rosemond's lawyer alleged that witnesses had been "bribed and threatened" by prosecution in order to bring down his client.

The former mogul currently awaits sentencing on the drug-trafficking charge, for which he is already facing life in prison.
