New Mexico compound suspects face new conspiracy

ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. – Federal authorities say five former residents of a New Mexico compound have been indicted on charges of conspiracy in a plan to attack U.S. law enforcement officers and employees.

The costs in a superseding indictment Wednesday accusing the two men in the group — Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Luke Morton — the construction of a shooting range at the Taos County compound the others for attacks that never occurred.

The men and three women on the site were arrested after an August attack that led to the discovery of 11 hungry children in the filth.

Authorities had been searching for Wahhaj’s son, who authorities say had medical problems before he was kidnapped from his mother in Georgia and taken by the group to New Mexico. He later died at the compound.
