Spring Trial Date Set For Terror Suspects

Joe Denoyer - November 30, 2016 10:44 am

(AP) A spring trial date has been set for three Kansas men accused of plotting to bomb an apartment complex where Somali immigrants live.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren scheduled on Wednesday the jury trial for April 25 at the federal courthouse in Wichita.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old Patrick Stein, 51-year-old Gavin Wright, and 49-year-old Curtis Allen were part of a militia group called The Crusaders.

The government alleges they conspired to detonate truck bombs at an apartment complex where 120 Somali immigrants live in the meatpacking town of Garden City. One of the units was used as a mosque.

They have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Trial had been set to begin Dec. 20, but attorneys asked for more time to prepare a defense.
