Man charged with bomb plot on churches to undergo evaluation

Prosecutors say a man who authorities say planned to attack dozens of churches with Molotov cocktails in the U.S. state of Oklahoma will undergo a mental evaluation.

MIAMI, Okla. — Prosecutors say a man who authorities say planned to attack dozens of churches with Molotov cocktails in the U.S. state of Oklahoma will undergo a mental evaluation.

Assistant District Attorney Becky Baird says it could take weeks for prosecutors to receive the report on Gregory Arthur Weiler II of Illinois. 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.
