Man charged in Okla. bomb plot to get evaluation

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors say an Illinois man who authorities say planned to attack dozens of churches with Molotov cocktails in northeastern Oklahoma will undergo a mental evaluation.

Ottawa County Assistant District Attorney Becky Baird says it could take weeks for prosecutors to receive the report on Gregory Arthur Weiler II of Elk Grove Village, Ill. A hearing for Weiler was pushed until Dec. 27, with the evaluation set for Wednesday.

Weiler's charged with threatening to use an explosive or incendiary device and violating Oklahoma's Antiterrorism Act. He was arrested in October after police say they discovered his plan to bomb dozens of churches in northeastern Oklahoma.

An affidavit claims that investigators found instructions for making Molotov cocktails, a list of 48 churches and a written outline of Weiler's plan to plant bombs.
