(AP) Federal prosecutors have charged two Pennsylvania brothers who co-owned a defense contracting business linked to late U.S. Rep. John Murtha with conspiracy for allegedly charging $650,000 for military component parts that were never delivered.


Defense attorneys for Ronald and William Kuchera did not immediately return requests for comment Wednesday. Their businesses, Kuchera Defense Systems Inc. and Kuchera Industries Inc., were targeted by the investigation.


In addition to charging for parts that were never delivered, the brothers are accused of claiming as business expenses money they spent on lobbying, a private airplane, hunting trips and expenses for a game ranch.


They also are accused of expensing kickbacks paid to Richard Ianieri, a defense contractor convicted in a Florida federal court for taking kickbacks, who has since cooperated with the government.
