A man and woman from Anchorage pleaded guilty in connection with a racially-motivated assault against an Alaska Native man.

Robert Gum, 19, and Deanna Scaglione, 21, will plead guilty in federal court to interference with federally protected activity, The Anchorage Daily News reported. They had posted video of their July 2009 attack on Eddie Barr on YouTube.
