A white supremacist gang member was sentenced to death Friday for the 2002 murder of one of the organization’s founders.

An Orange County jury recommended in June that Michael Lamb, 34, a member of the gang Public Enemy Number One, should die for killing Scott Miller in 2002 in retaliation for giving away some of the gang’s secrets.

A different jury had deadlocked last year.

Lamb and codefendant Jacob Rump, 32, were convicted a year ago in Miller’s murder and for trying to kill an undercover police officer tailing them after Miller was found dead in an Anaheim alley with a gunshot wound to the back of his head.

Rump faces life in prison without parole at his Aug. 31 sentencing. Prosecutors also seek the death penalty against codefendant Billy Joe Johnson, 45, who is serving 45 years to life in prison for a 2004 slaying.
