GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A jury has found a Virginia man guilty of trying to kill seven Montana law enforcement officers by throwing pipe bombs at their vehicles during a chase in north-central Montana.

The Great Falls Tribune reports Laurence Alan Stewart II was convicted Monday in Great Falls of seven counts of attempted deliberate homicide for his actions during a 45-minute chase on Nov. 1.

At the time, Stewart was wanted for setting off pipe bombs on Oct. 30 in Stafford County, Va., at the homes of two law enforcement officers and his ex-fiancee, who had a restraining order against him.

That information was not included in the Montana trial and those charges are still pending.
