Christian Militia Plot Suspects Seek Bail

Several members of a Christian militia that prosecutors claim plotted to kill police officers were scheduled to be in a Detroit court Wednesday to determine if they will be allowed to go free on bail.

Bond hearings are scheduled for the alleged ringleader, David Brian Stone, and other members of the Hutaree militia, a small group that was preparing to fight what it believes is the Antichrist.

Stone, 44, of Clayton, Michigan, was among nine members arrested after a series of raids in three Midwestern states, which U.S. federal officials said they carried out after monitoring the group since last summer and learning it planned to launch its attack next month.

Each of the suspects is being held without bail and each has requested a public defender. Bond hearings are scheduled Wednesday for Stone and other Hutaree members.
