GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A law enforcement informant is expected to take the stand Wednesday morning when the trial for two Georgia men accused in a militia plot resumes.

Prosecutors say Samuel Crump and Ray Adams plotted to make a poison to use against government officials and federal buildings. Wednesday will be the second day of testimony in their trial before U.S. District Judge Richard Story in Gainesville.

The two were among four men arrested in November 2011 after surveillance by an undercover informant who infiltrated their meetings. They face charges of conspiring and attempting to make ricin.

Two other men, Frederick Thomas and Dan Roberts, pleaded guilty in April 2012 to conspiring to get an unregistered explosive and an illegal gun silencer. Story sentenced each of them to five years in prison.
