CINCINNATI – A federal judge has again delayed court proceedings for a 21-year-old Cincinnati-area man accused of plotting to attack the U.S. Capitol in support of Islamic State extremists.
Christopher Lee Cornell has pleaded not guilty to four counts, including attempted murder of U.S. officials and employees.
On Monday, U.S. District Judge Sandra Beckwith scheduled a Nov. 10 status conference in the case. Beckwith ordered the delay in proceedings after hearing from both sides.
Beckwith writes that both sides are deciding on expert witnesses and reviewing potential evidence in a case that involves classified information.
She also notes the superseding indictment issued last month. It added a charge alleging Cornell offered support and resources, including himself, to Islamic State extremists.
Cornell has been held without bond since his Jan. 14 arrest.
