FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - An imprisoned former chiropractor and gun dealer from Fairbanks has been accused of attempting to solicit the murder of federal officers while behind bars.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://goo.gl/VVMn92 ) reports Guy Christopher Mannino, 56, has been in prison since Oct. 2013 awaiting sentencing for federal weapons charges.

The office of the U.S. Attorney says the solicitation attempt occurred between Sept. 8 and Nov. 6 of this year.

Mannino was charged with a single count of soliciting murder of several officials. That charge carries a potential sentence of up to 20 years in prison. The charging document doesn’t say how many officers were threatened.

Last year Mannino was charged but never indicted with setting off a recreational explosive at a gun range. The shock wave from the blast damaged several homes.
