Hearing set for Illinois National Guard soldier terror suspect

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

A hearing has been set for the Illinois guardsman accused of plotting terrorist attacks.

A federal judge is scheduled to hold a detention hearing at 2 p.m. Monday for the 22-year-old Illinois Army National Guard soldier accused of planning an attack on a northern Illinois military facility.

Prosecutors must provide proof Monday in Chicago why Hasan Edmonds should remain jailed.

The complaint says he sent a message to an undercover FBI agent in January saying he hoped to travel to the middle east, but if he couldn't he wanted to cause as much damage and mayhem in the United States as possible.

An arraignment has not been scheduled yet.
