Four Men Convicted in New Orleans Murder for Hire

NEW ORLEANS – U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that LOUIS AGE JR., age 73, and LOUIS’ son, LOUIS AGE III, a/k/a “Big Lou”, age 51, RONALD WILSON a/k/a “Tank”, age 47, and STANTON GUILLORY a/k/a “Nan-Nan”, age 27, all from New Orleans, were found guilty yesterday after a three-week jury trial before United States District Judge Barry W. Ashe. They were found guilty of various violations, including conspiracy to commit murder for hire, murder for hire, and other related offenses along with lying  to a federal agent.

Milton Womack was shot and killed on July 27, 2012.  On August 17, 2017, a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment charging LOUIS AGE JR., LOUIS AGE III, a/k/a “Big Lou”, RONALD WILSON a/k/a “Tank”, and STANTON GUILLORY a/k/a “Nan-Nan” with a variety of crimes related to an alleged plot to murder Milton Womack. These crimes were committed both to retaliate against and  prevent Mr. Womack from testifying in a federal health care fraud trial and from cooperating with law enforcement about the  health care fraud as well as   other crimes, including  the use of fire to commit mail fraud.

AGE JR. was also charged and convicted of crimes related to an alleged plot against another witness. Additionally, AGE JR. was charged and convicted of making false statements to federal agents.   AGE III was also charged and convicted of making false statements to federal agents.

LOUIS AGE JR., LOUIS AGE III, a/k/a “Big Lou”, RONALD WILSON a/k/a “Tank”, and STANTON GUILLORY a/k/a “Nan-Nan” all face a mandatory life sentence.  Sentencing will be held before United States District Judge Barry W. Ashe on August 4. 2022. 

U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Orleans Police Department in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorneys Elizabeth Privitera, David Haller, Brandon Long and Ted Carter are in charge of the prosecution.
