|Description||Four US soldiers plotted to assassinate Barack Obama and overthrow the government, a court has heard. |
One, private Michael Burnett, has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and gang charges in the killings last December of former soldier Michael Roark and his girlfriend, 17-year-old Tiffany York.
Burnett said that Roark, who had just left the army, knew of the militia group's plans and was killed because he was "a loose end."
