GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- The trial for two men accused in a Georgia militia plot prosecutors say targeted government officials and U.S. cities is set to begin.
Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the trial for Samuel Crump and Ray Adams before U.S. District Judge Richard Story in Gainesville.
The two were among four men arrested in November after surveillance by an undercover informant who infiltrated their meetings at homes, during car rides and at a Waffle House restaurant. 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.
