Former Bury Your Dead Guitarist Eric Ellis On Trial For Racketeering Charges

Former Bury Your Dead guitarist Eric Ellis is on trial in Jacksonville, FL in connection to a series of gang-oriented crimes; including home invasions, bank robbery, assaults and more.

Ellis (who played with the band from 2004-2008,) and Maynard Kenneth Godwin are up for racketeering charges related to a gang they were allegedly deeply involved in dubbed “The Guardians” — an outfit alleged to be inspired by the fictional outlaw biker club featured in the “Sons Of Anarchy” TV series.
