9th militia suspect faces charges in Mich.
The last of nine people charged with plotting to kill police has been arraigned in a Detroit federal court.
Twenty-one-year-old Joshua Matthew Stone was arraigned Tuesday before a U.S. District Court magistrate and was ordered held without bond until a hearing Wednesday.
Stone peacefully surrendered Monday night in Hillsdale County's Wheatland Township.
Authorities say Stone's father and seven others charged Monday were part of the Michigan-based Hutaree. They say the group plotted to kill a police officer and slaughter scores more by bombing the funeral - all in hopes of touching off an uprising against the government.
Stone was the only suspect not arrested during weekend raids in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
