A federal jury yesterday found Joseph Hunter, of Owensboro, Kentucky, and Adam Samia and Carl David Stillwell, both of Roxboro, North Carolina, guilty of committing murder-for-hire and other charges.

Prosecutors say Hunter recruited the two for the cold-blooded hit on the Filipino real estate agent in 2012. He paid them each $35,000. The 12-day trial offered a window into the clandestine world of private mercenaries willing to kill for money.

Defense attorneys had said the case was too weak to convict them. All three face up to life in prison. Hunter already is serving 20 years over a plot to kill a federal agent.
