By The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ' A jury in Anchorage has convicted two Alaska militia members of conspiring to murder federal law enforcement officers.

Jurors deliberated two full days before returning a verdict against 28-year-old Schaeffer Cox and 56-year-old Lonnie Vernon. The jury deadlocked on the same charge for another member, 37-year-old Coleman Barney.

All three members of the Alaska Peacemakers Militia also were convicted of conspiring to possess unregistered silencers and destructive devices. They were accused of amassing weapons like hand grenades, projectile launchers and handguns with silencers. Cox was acquitted of carrying a firearm during a crime of violence. That crime of violence, according to the government, was the conspiracy to murder.
