of participating in a murder plot.
On Thursday, prosecutors released the first photographs of weapons and planning materials from the alleged "241" murder plot. The materials were released to support arguments that the five defendants are too dangerous to be released on bail before trial.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Thursday that the new documents include photographs of handwritten notes with instructions for a "security team." Prosecutors say the materials are evidence of the group's plan to retaliate against the government for any action against Schaeffer Cox, head of the Peacemakers Militia.
The move by federal prosecutors comes after a state judge reduced bail for one of the defendants in the state's case against the five.
