SALEM, Ore. - A jury yesterday sentenced a father and son to death for planting a bomb that exploded inside an Oregon bank two years ago, killing two police officers and maiming a third.

Prosecutors portrayed Bruce and Joshua Turnidge as bigots who hated authorities, were desperate for money and feared that newly elected President Obama would take away their guns.

Both defendants stood with their lawyers, showing no emotion as Marion County Circuit Judge Tom Hart read the jury's verdict.

Sheriff's deputies handcuffed them with their hands in front of their bodies.
