DETROIT — Three members of a Michigan-based militia accused of conspiring against the government could be going home until trial.
Rod Hansen, a spokesman for the federal court in Detroit, says Tina Stone, David Stone Jr., and Jacob Ward are expected to appear in court early Tuesday afternoon.
Hansen says prosecutors apparently have dropped their opposition to keeping the three in jail.
Gina Balaya, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office, says there’s been an agreement between prosecutors and defense lawyers. She had no other details.
Nine members of a group called Hutaree are charged with conspiring to commit sedition, or rebellion, against the government and the attempted use of weapons of mass destruction.
Prosecutors still are appealing to keep six of the nine in pretrial detention.
