PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Two American women and a Maryland teen convicted of helping terrorists plan a Muslim holy war are set to be sentenced by year’s end.

Colleen LaRose of Pennsburg, Pa., faces a life sentence for plotting to kill Swedish artist Lars Vilks over a cartoon that offended Muslims.

The 48-year-old LaRose, who called herself “Jihad Jane” in a YouTube video, will be sentenced Dec. 19. She’s been in custody since she returned from Ireland to surrender to the FBI in 2009.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Colorado and 18-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid of Ellicott City, Md., will be sentenced Nov. 30.

They face up to 15 years each for providing material aid to the Irish-based terror cell.

Authorities say Paulin-Ramirez married a terror suspect in Ireland, and Khalid agreed to deliver a passport.
