What ever happened to the Hutaree Christian militia?

Four of the nine arrested in March have been released on bail and on Wednesday, additional gun charges were filed against four.

Reuters James B. Kelleher and Cynthia Osterman reported:

The indictment originally unsealed in late March accused the nine, members of a midwestern militia group called the Hutaree, of planning to kill a police officer in Michigan and then ambush the funeral procession using explosives.

The new indictment adds 10 weapons charges including possession of machineguns and unregistered rifles and use of firearms during a violent crime.

According to the new indictment federal agents seized from defendants’ homes in March machineguns, unregistered short-barreled rifles and over 148,000 rounds of ammunition, as well as “a variety of explosives and related items capable of being readily assembled to build several types of destructive devices.”
