Staff reports Updated: June 15, 2011 at 12:00 am

DENVER — A federal jury in Denver has found four Florence prison inmates guilty in the beating death of an inmate.

Authorities say Pablo Zuniga-Garcia was killed because the other inmates thought he was a snitch on gang members, according to the Denver Post.

The 33-year-old man was serving a 54-month sentence in the Federal Correctional Institution for an illegal-immigration conviction when he was beaten to death in his cell in 2008.

Jose Augustin Pluma, Juan Martin Ruelas, Mark Rosalez and Justin Hernandez were convicted Tuesday. They will be sentenced Aug. 25 in U.S. District Court in Denver.
