LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada jury has found two men who were accused of posing as religious missionaries guilty of kidnapping and armed robbery in a case that could get them life in prison for a violent Las Vegas home break-in.

Abraham Austin Jr. and Robert Estall II also were found guilty Tuesday of conspiracy, armed burglary and battery in the June 2013 home-invasion and beating of Terence Delucia.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1vuTvVR ) that Delucia testified about an ounce of marijuana and $3,000 was stolen. Delucia isn’t facing drug charges.

Austin and Estall used to serve in the Air Force together. Prosecutors say they wore white collared shirts and black ties, pants and shoes of a style commonly worn by Mormon missionaries.

Austin and Estall are due for sentencing Dec. 4.
