Six of the seven North Carolina men accused in a federal terrorism case have been transferred to a jail in Virginia.
Federal authorities said Thursday that the six are now being held at a jail in Farmville, Va. Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryan Konig wouldn't say when or why they were transferred but did say the Marshal's Service has a contract with the jail to house federal prisoners.
U.S. Magistrate Judge William Webb on Wednesday ordered that the six remain in custody until trial, saying they're a flight risk and a danger. But he also questioned the strength of the prosecutors' case.
The detention hearing for the seventh suspect will be held Monday. He's still being held in Wake County.
