BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A federal jury in Connecticut has acquitted two men and convicted a third in what prosecutors said was a conspiracy by white supremacists to sell grenades and guns to a government informant posing as a national supremacist group member.
The jury on Wednesday found Kenneth Zrallack of Ansonia and David Sutton of Milford not guilty of conspiracy charges. Alexander DeFelice was convicted of conspiracy and weapons charges.
Federal prosecutors said 29-year-old Zrallack is the leader of the Connecticut-based Battalion 14 white supremacist group, formerly known as the Connecticut White Wolves.
Authorities say 33-year-old DeFelice is a Battalion 14 member. They say 46-year-old Sutton, who is black, has known DeFelice for years but isn’t a white supremacist.
