A final effort by five Muslim men to appeal their convictions for plotting a deadly strike at Fort Dix has been rejected.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied to hear the case, ending the lengthy appeal process.
The men — Mohamad Shnewer, Serdar Tatar, and Cherry Hill brothers Dritan, Eljvir and Shain Duka — were arrested in May 2007. In 2008, a federal jury in Camden convicted them of conspiring to kill U.S. military personnel at Fort Dix. All but Tatar are serving life terms.
A sixth man, Agron Abdullahu from Atlantic County, was also arrested. Officials said Abdullahu was not involved in the plot, but held weapons for the men. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison in 2008.
