LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former stripper and her lover were acquitted Tuesday of murdering casino heir Ted Binion, who prosecutors say was drugged and suffocated in a plot to steal a $7 million cache of silver bars and coins he had buried in the desert.

The jury found the suspects guilty of conspiracy, grand larceny and burglary. Jurors deliberated over parts of four days before reaching the verdict against Sandy Murphy and Rick Tabish.

They could have gotten life in prison without parole if convicted of murder. It was not immediately clear how much time they could face for the other charges.
