Oklahoma man found not guilty by reason of insanity for church bomb plot
TULSA, Okla. – A man who is accused of planning to bomb dozens of Oklahoma churches was found not guilty by reason of insanity by a federal judge on Friday.
Officials say 25-year-old Gregory Arthur Weiler II was charged last February with possessing an incendiary device.
According to an arrest affidavit, police found maps and torn-up notes that detailed how to make Molotov cocktails.
The report claims officers also found a list of 48 local churches that detailed when congregations met and how many people attended.
The affidavit also alleges that they discovered a journal that talked about destroying church buildings in Oklahoma.
A motel maintenance man also reported finding a duffel bag that held materials associated with explosives in a trash can.
The judge ruled that Weiler was not able to tell the difference between right and wrong at the time of the alleged crime.
