Three brothers convicted of plotting to kill military personnel at Fort Dix in New Jersey will spend the rest of their lives in prison. A federal judge in Camden has sentenced 30-year-old Dritan Duka and 28-year-old Shain Duka to life in prison plus 30 years. Their 25-year-old brother, Eljvir, has been sentenced to life in prison.

Two other men convicted in the plot are to be sentenced Wednesday.

The five were convicted of conspiring to kill military personnel in a plot that authorities portrayed as one of the most frightening homegrown terrorism plans ever in the United States.

The Duka brothers ran a roofing company in Cherry Hill before they were arrested two years ago.
