3 Face Sentencing in Texas Weapons Case

Three people face sentencing as early as next month for their involvement in the stockpiling of chemical weapons in East Texas, which some authorities believe may have been part of a domestic terrorism plot. William Krar, 62, of Noonday, pleaded guilty in November to one count of possessing a dangerous chemical weapon after investigators discovered the components needed to make lethal cyanide gas at a storage facility he rented with his common-law wife, Judith Bruey. Bruey, 54, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess illegal weapons. Edward Feltus, 56, of New Jersey, has pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the transportation of false identification documents. A sentencing date has not been set for the three, who are being held in a Tyler detention facility, federal court officials said Wednesday. Krar could be imprisoned, but the federal statute regarding the charge doesn’t specify a minimum or maximum penalty. Bruey faces up to five years in prison, and Feltus faces up to 15 years. Investigators say they still don’t know the intended use of the weapons. Full Story
