FARMINGTON — A jury has found two members of the Earth First! environmental group guilty of blocking a road leading to a western Maine wind power construction site.

A Franklin County jury today returned guilty verdicts on 27-year-old Willow Cordes-Eklund, of Minneapolis, and 27-year-old Erik Gillard, of Montpelier, Vt.

The Sun Journal says they were sentenced to 10 days in jail and fined $500 for their actions in protesting a TransCanada wind turbine project in remote Franklin County last summer.

The pair were part of a larger protest in which several dozen demonstrators gathered to protest construction of wind turbines on Kibby Mountain.

Cordes-Eklund chained herself by the neck to an undercarriage of a truck hauling a turbine blade to Kibby Mountain.
