Earlier this week, the Associated Press reported that a judge ruled that the five suspects in the bridge bomb plot case must stay in jail until their trial. Read the full story on the Huffington Post.
The five men are Brandon L. Baxter of Lakewood; Anthony Hayne of Cleveland; Joshua S. Stafford of Cleveland; Connor C. Stevens of Berea; and Douglas L. Wright of Indianapolis. They were arrested in April for allegedly plotting to blow up the bridge connecting Brecksville and Sagamore Hills in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and pled not guilty in May.
Here’s a look at some of the interesting coverage since we’ve checked in on the case:
- The Plain Dealer: A federal judge originally suggested the suspects’ trial begin on Sept. 11—the anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York City and D.C. After some protesting from the defense attorneys, the judge agreed to move the date to the 17th.
