Three members of a far-right militia, who were convicted of plotting to massacre Muslims in southwest Kansas, were sentenced Friday to decades in prison.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren sentenced Patrick Stein, the alleged ringleader, to 30 years in prison and Curtis Allen, who drafted a manifesto for the group, to 25 years. Gavin Wright, who authorities said helped make and test explosives at his mobile home business, received 26 years.
