Two white supremacists accused of plotting to kill President-elect Barack Obama and dozens of others face more federal charges in Tennessee.
Daniel Cowart of Tennessee and Paul Schlesselman of Arkansas were indicted by a federal grand jury this month on firearms and conspiracy charges. Federal prosecutors say more charges alleging damage to religious property and use of a firearm during a crime of violence were added Thursday.
Cowart and Schlesselman have been held in a West Tennessee jail
without bond since their arrests on Oct. 22.
The men were first taken into custody on allegations they shot out a window of a rural church. Cowart's attorney did not
immediately return a call seeking comment. Schlesselman's public
defender declines to comment on the case.
