He’s already gotten 45 years in a plot to attack the Marine base in Quantico, Virginia and overseas targets.  Now, a terror convict has been found guilty in a murder-for-hire scheme.  Prosecutors say Hysen Sherifi asked another inmate to help him hire a hit man to behead witnesses who testified against him.

A brother of the 28-year-old and a friend pleading guilty to lesser charges and testifying against him in a plea deal.  Sherifi, who says he was arrested because of his Muslim faith, is looking at a maximum of life behind bars when he is sentenced in February for this.
