A Surrey couple has been found guilty of plotting to detonate bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day 2013.

The verdict by the B.C. Supreme Court jury in the case of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody came after three days of deliberation.

The couple is guilty of one count each of conspiring to commit murder and possessing explosives for the benefit or on behalf of a terrorist organization.

The jury began its deliberations on Sunday following a nearly four-month trial and three days of judge’s instructions that were more than 300 pages long.

Nuttall and Korody were accused of conspiracy to commit murder, making or possessing an explosive device, and conspiracy to place an explosive device with the intent to cause death or injury.

The couple had pleaded not guilty to the charges. Neither one of the accused testified in court.

But the trial isn’t over yet.

Nuttall and Korody’s lawyers will be back in court to argue the case that the pair were entrapped by police.

The convictions won’t be entered until after the defence has a chance to argue that police entrapped the couple into the plot during a sting operation. The jury’s guilty verdicts can be stayed if the judge finds entrapment or other abuses of process.

Arguments for entrapment will be heard by the judge in July.
