Weiler's charged with threatening to use an explosive or incendiary device and violating Oklahoma's Antiterrorism Act. He was arrested in October after police say they discovered his plan to bomb dozens of churches in northeastern Oklahoma.

An affidavit claims that investigators found instructions for making Molotov cocktails, a list of 48 churches and a written outline of Weiler's plan to plant bombs.
