    "All right, full auto," the firing-range instructor tells a 9-year-old girl. She braces the Uzi submachine gun and opens fire at a black-silhouette target. But the recoil wrenches the fully automatic weapon upward, and the instructor is shot in the head and killed.

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. -

A Sierra vista couple pleaded guilty to money laundering and transporting marijuana for almost 12 years, Attorney General Tom Horne announced Friday.

Husband and wife duo Juan Manuel Alvarado-Fajardo and Neriah Kidebar Morin-Alvarado admitted to conducting drug transactions and then laundering the proceeds into properties in Sierra Vista and multiple vehicles.

When authorities conducted a search warrant in October 2012, they say they found $98,600 in cash hidden in a safety deposit box at a local bank and $35,000 in their savings account.

The plea agreement requires the Alvarado's to forfeit eight of the vehicles, 10 of the properties, and all of the cash that was seized by investigators.

According to the Attorney General's office, the couple conducted illegal activities between January 2000 and October 2012.

The Alvarado's will be sentenced on September 12. They face a minimum term of probation or a maximum of 8.75 years in prison.

Eight branches of law enforcement on state and federal levels worked together to break the case.
