Judge Orders Mental Exam for Oklahoma Bomb Plot Suspect
MIAMI, Okla. (AP) - A judge has ordered a mental evaluation for an Illinois man accused of plotting to bomb dozens of churches in northeastern Oklahoma.
Gregory Weiler had been set for a preliminary hearing Monday, but a judge delayed that until Dec. 17 so Weiler can have a competency evaluation. He was arrested after workers found the ingredients for Molotov cocktails in a trash bin at a hotel in Miami (MY'-am-uh).
An affidavit claims that investigators found instructions for making Molotov cocktails, a list of 48 churches and a written outline of Weiler's plan to plant bombs.
The Miami News-Record reports (http://is.gd/lPhVwi ) that Weiler will be taken to a state hospital in Vinita for a psychological evaluation.
Weiler's relatives have said that he has struggled with mental illness and substance abuse.
