A former Navy recruit has been charged in connection with a militia group that Georgia prosecutors say plotted terrorist attacks while members operated inside the U.S. military. District Attorney Tom Durden of southeast Georgia's Atlantic Judicial Circuit said Wednesday that 27-year-old Jeffrey Wayne Roberts of Savannah is the 11th person charged in the case. Authorities say the group was led by Army soldiers from Fort Stewart.
