TOLEDO, Ohio (AP/KDKA) – Federal prosecutors say an Ohio couple charged last month in a terrorism investigation is now accused of obtaining guns and explosives in a plot to kill others.
The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday announced the indictments that include conspiracy charges against the pair from Toledo.
Authorities in court documents filed in December said both Vincent Armstrong and his girlfriend, Elizabeth Lecron, had talked about carrying out violence and had bomb-making supplies and weapons inside their home.
Investigators also say the two traveled to Colorado in 2018 to see the site of the Columbine High School massacre.
Armstrong’s attorney says she has not yet reviewed the new charges. A message seeking comment was left Lecron’s attorney.
The charges include conspiracy to transport or receive guns and explosives.
Another Ohio man, 21-year-old Damon Joseph, was arrested in December for allegedly planning to carry out an attack at an Ohio synagogue on behalf of ISIS.
