Trial date set for alleged terrorists

A trial date has been set for the alleged home-grown terrorists who authorities say wanted to bomb two Jewish sites in the Bronx.

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payan, who all face life in prison, appeared Thursday at a Westchester County court. They also face charges for allegedly wanting to shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Force Base in Orange County.

At the four men's court appearance, the prosecution turned over evidence to defense attorneys including 12 search warrants, surveillance photos and recordings.

The trial is set to begin next year on June 14.
