Judge Rules Man Charged in Bomb Plot Competent to Stand Trial

No trial date has been set for Gregory Weiler.
MIAMI, OK.--- A judge rules an Illinois man charged in an Ottawa County bomb plot is competent to stand trial. No trial date has been set for Gregory Weiler. Back in August, his attorney announced they would pursue an insanity defense. That prompted the judge to order a mental health examination for Weiler. 

The results from that test proved Weiler is capable to stand trial for his crimes. Authorities arrested Weiler in October 2012 after linking him to 52 homemade firebombs found outside the Legacy Inn in Miami. They also found a journal detailing Weiler's plan to destroy 48 churches and religious buildings in Miami and four more in Ottawa County.
