Alaska couple admits to plot to kill federal judge and others
Yereth RosenANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - An Alaska couple pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of conspiring to kill a federal judge in what prosecutors said was a revenge plot over income-tax rulings against them.
Lonnie and Karen Vernon, followers of jailed Alaska militia leader Schaeffer Cox, reached a deal with prosecutors to avoid the need for a trial that had been set to begin next month.
The Vernons and Cox were active in the "sovereign citizen" movement, whose adherents believe individuals are sovereign nations and federal, state and local laws do not apply to them.
