CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Leslie Casterlow and Anthony White have pleaded guilty to crimes associated with the murder of Waynesboro reserve police officer Kevin Quick, according to online court records.

Casterlow pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.  White pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge.

Casterlow and White are among the nine people indicted for Quick's abduction and slaying.

The people who carjacked, kidnapped and killed Quick were members of the Bloods street gang, according to a 39-page indictment unsealed in May. The indictment indicated the gang members robbed stores and sold drugs in the weeks and months leading up to Quick's murder. [Click here to read the indictments]

The suspects killed Quick “for the purpose of gaining entrance to and maintaining and increasing position in the enterprise, an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity,” the indictments indicated.

Quick was reported missing Friday, Jan. 31 after he left his mother’s home in Afton.

He was on his way to see the mother of his four-month-old daughter in Albemarle County. His body was discovered Thursday off Old Columbia Road in Goochland County, near the Fluvanna County line.
