WACO, Texas (AP) - A soldier accused of plotting to blow up a restaurant full of troops near a Texas Army post has pleaded not guilty to six new charges.
Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo answered "sure do" Thursday when a federal judge in Waco asked if he understood the charges.
He was arrested in July near Fort Hood in Texas. Prosecutors say he had gone AWOL from Kentucky's Fort Campbell and was plotting to detonate two bombs in a restaurant full of Fort Hood soldiers and to shoot anyone who survived.
Abdo was indicted on three charges in August and six others last week, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. That charge carries a maximum life sentence.
Prosecutors say they plan to try Abdo on the new charges first.
