VANCOUVER - A jury is has begun deliberations today into the fate of two people accused of plotting to bomb the British Columbia legislature.

The jurors have spent weeks hearing evidence against John Nuttall and Amanda Korody, who face charges of conspiracy to commit murder, placing an explosive in a public place and possession of an explosive substance.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce finished delivering her legal instructions to jurors on Saturday and the jury started its work this morning, May 31.

The Crown alleged Nuttall and Korody were the only members of a home-grown terrorist group, whose goal was linked to the radical form of Islam they followed.

Their defence lawyers contended police manipulated their clients into planting the home-made pressure-cooker bombs in an elaborate months-long undercover operation.

The evidence included video and audio surveillance of Nuttall and Korody during a sting operation that involved more than 240 officers.
