Ex-Raider Anthony Wayne Smith faces 3 new murder charges

LOS ANGELES (AP) — New murder charges filed against former Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders lineman Anthony Wayne Smith claim two brothers and another man were kidnapped and robbed before they were killed.

A criminal complaint filed earlier this week in Los Angeles charges Smith with three additional counts of murder with special circumstances, making him eligible for the death penalty.

Smith is currently awaiting retrial in the 2008 murder of Maurilio Pence. A jury failed to reach a verdict in April.

Smith was charged with the November 1999 slayings of brothers Kevin and Ricky Nettles and the 2001 death of Dennis Henderson.

A phone message left for defense attorney Michael Evans was not immediately returned Friday.

Smith was a defensive end with Oakland and later the Los Angeles Raiders from 1991 to 1998.
