Three known members of the Wolverine Watchmen will stand trial but will not be charged with terrorism for allegedly participating in the plot to storm the state capitol and kidnap lawmakers.

Joseph Morrison, Pete Musico and Paul Bellar, who is not pictured, were in court Monday.

They are three of the several men arrested on domestic terrorism charges for the plot against the state capitol and state lawmakers, including the governor.

The judge Monday ruled against the terrorism charge, but each man still faces at least 20 years in prison for other charges.

The attorney general says she will explore all options for reconsideration of the terrorism charge moving forward.
