Accused skinheads to face magistrate at hearing

Enlarge this image




MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A federal magistrate will decide if authorities can continue to hold two white supremacists accused of plotting to kill dozens of black people including Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The two men are scheduled to go before a magistrate in Memphis on Thursday for a probable cause hearing. The magistrate will decide if authorities have enough evidence against the men to keep them behind bars.
Twenty-year-old Daniel Cowart and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman are charged with possessing an illegal firearm, planning to steal weapons from a federally licensed gun dealer and making threats against a presidential candidate.
Authorities say the two were plotting a killing spree in which they would kill dozens of black people before attacking Obama.

Arraignment set in Tenn. in plot to kill Obama



MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Two white supremacists accused of plotting to kill President-elect Barack Obama and dozens of other black people are scheduled to be arraigned in Tennessee.
A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted 20-year-old Daniel Cowart of Tennessee and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman of Arkansas. Their hearing was set Thursday in a Memphis court.
They are charged with threatening a presidential candidate, possessing a sawed-off shotgun, planning to rob a gun dealer and taking firearms across state lines.
The seven-count indictment says a plot for the killing spree was hatched by Cowart and Schlesselman sometime between Sept. 1 and Oct. 22. Court records indicate their plot fell apart quickly.
Their arrests were made public Oct. 27 and they are being held without bond.
