Weiler's attorney declined to comment later Tuesday.

Weiler is due back in court Feb. 7.

Prosecutors say Weiler planned to bomb churches in Oklahoma and that investigators found instructions for making Molotov cocktails, a list of 48 churches and a written outline of his plan.

Family members have said that Weiler has struggled with mental illness but is fine when he takes his medication. Relatives believe Weiler may have stopped taking his medication before his arrest.
