GAINESVILLE, GA (AP) -

Two men accused in a Georgia militia plot prosecutors say targeted government officials and U.S. cities are set to appear in federal court in February.

A court notice filed Wednesday says a trial for Samuel Crump and Ray Adams will begin before U.S. District Judge Richard Story in Gainesville on Feb. 25.

The two were among four men arrested in November after surveillance by an undercover informant who infiltrated their meetings at homes, during car rides and at a Waffle House restaurant. They face charges of conspiring and attempting to make ricin.

Two other men, Frederick Thomas and Dan Roberts, pleaded guilty in April to conspiring to get an unregistered explosive and an illegal gun silencer. Story in August sentenced each of them to five years in prison.
