Feds: 9th militia suspect to face charges in Michigan

WHEATLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The last of nine people charged
with plotting to kill police will be arraigned in a Detroit federal
court.

Spokeswoman Gina Balaya of the U.S. attorney's office in Detroit tells The Associated Press that 21-year-old Joshua Matthew Stone has a 1 p.m hearing Tuesday before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Donald A. Scheer.

Stone peacefully surrendered Monday night in Hillsdale County's
Wheatland Township.

Authorities say Stone's father and seven others charged Monday
were part of the Michigan-based Hutaree. They say the group plotted
to kill a police officer and slaughter scores more by bombing the
funeral - all in hopes of touching off an uprising against the
government.

Stone was the only suspect not arrested during weekend raids in
Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
