NEW BERN, N.C. — A seventh member of a home-grown terror ring that conspired to attack the Quantico U.S. Marine Corps base and foreign targets has been found guilty of conspiring to help terrorists and to hurt people overseas.

U.S. Attorney Thomas Walker said 35-year-old Anes Subasic also was found guilty Thursday in New Bern. He earlier was found guilty of two counts of unlawful procurement of citizenship.

He faces up to a life in prison for conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure people in a foreign country and up to 15 years in prison for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

Prosecutors said he was part of a terror ring led by Daniel Patrick Boyd, who lived in rural Johnston County. Boyd pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges in February 2011.
