DENVER (AP) — A Moffat County jury has found Georgie Louise Hand guilty of kidnapping, aggravated robbery and disarming a peace officer after two law officers were held at gunpoint while checking out a suspicious vehicle.

Investigators say Hand and James Damon stripped the officers of a firearm, stun guns and radios and nearly took one of their vehicles before an officer got his gun back and Damon was shot and killed.

Neither officer was injured in the confrontation last year near the small town of Dinosaur, about 10 miles from the Utah border.

Hand told investigators she and Damon had been injecting meth at least once a day throughout the week, according to court records.

Sentencing is set for June 13.
