Two alleged members of a San Bernardino motorcycle gang have been convicted in the beating and shooting death of a Fontana man over a financial debt, authorities said Thursday.

Jurors found Keith Allen Silva, 47, and David Anthony Beltran, 35, guilty Tuesday of the first-degree murder and torture of 34-year-old Dennis Daoussis in April 2003.

Prosecutors said Silva and Beltran belonged to the Vagos Motorcycle Club, which San Bernardino law enforcement authorities describe as a criminal gang.

Silva was president of Vagos’ San Bernardino chapter and Beltran was sergeant-in-arms, according to San Bernardino County Deputy Dist. Atty. John Thomas, who prosecuted the case.

“They beat the victim at his Fontana residence over a $3,000 debt owed to one of the Vagos members,” Thomas said.
Almost a dozen Vagos members participated in the beating of Daoussis at his house, prosecutors said. The gang members then drove him to the Mojave Desert, where they killed him with “one gunshot to the left temple,” Thomas said.

Prosecutors said dogged detective work by the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department led to Beltran’s arrest in 2007 based on DNA evidence found at the desert crime scene.
