The "militia" was in court today

An alleged murderous trio of soldiers that civilian prosecutors near Fort Stewart have labeled a militia was back in court today where they learned they could face death in connection with the murders of another alleged militia member and his teenage girlfriend last December.

A self-professed fifth member of the so-called militia pleaded guilty to lesser charges earlier this week in a deal with prosecutors and has agreed to testify against the others.

Remains to be seen if prosecutors will now settle in and prosecute the murder cases at hand. Or if they'll keep pushing the militia theme that includes an extensive list of fantasy-like plots they say the group planned to carry out on both the east and west coast.

Among the plots alleged by prosecutors: Overthrowing the U.S. government and poisoning the Washington state apple crop.
