TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A soldier from Conway facing Federal charges appeared in court today.
Jarrett William Smith is facing new charges. He was charged with distributing explosives information and threatened to set fire to a home of someone listed only as D.H.
The indictment also says Smith tried to gain entry to a home and injured someone, and alleges he made the threat from Kansas to Michigan.
Federal prosecutors have said smith discussed his plan to kill far-left-leaning “antifa” activists and described how to build a bomb that could be triggered by calling a cellphone.
The 24-year-old private first class and infantry soldier is stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. He was initially charged in a criminal complaint Monday.
