Separate Trials Planned
The judge agreed with the defendant's attornies on holding separate trials. Youssef Megahed's trial is slated to start on May 5. Ahmed Mohammed's trial will begin in July. A new indictment against Mohammed includes charges he violated his student visa by possessing a firearm and supplying 'material support of terrorism' intended to cause injury or death to persons outside the U.S.
