BOSTON — Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller on behalf of the Islamic State group.
Prosecutors say David Wright was the ringleader of a plot to kill Geller, who organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas. The plot was never carried out. Prosecutors say Wright also wanted to commit other attacks in the U.S.
The 28-year-old could face up to life in prison if convicted of conspiring to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries.
