OAKLAND — A judge agreed Thursday that a prosecutor can use evidence of financial fraud from other cases as well as “other bad acts” against Yusuf Bey IV in his upcoming triple murder trial. Bey IV, who headed the bakery, told associates Devaughndre Broussard and Antonie Mackey they would reap monetary rewards if in August 2007 they killed journalist Chauncey Bailey, who was writing about the bakery’s bankruptcy case, Deputy District Attorney Melissa Krum said.
