Wednesday's federal jury insisted five relatives from Atlanta, cutting them to plot terrorism after kidnapping a kidnapping and retreating to a remote desert compound in New Mexico.
The defendants, who were raided last summer, were accused of planning terrorism, but the indictment is the first time such formal allegations have been made. The Clayton County boy was found dead in the compound on his 4th birthday.
Previously, relatives, who lived around the counties of Clayton, DeKalb and Fulton, were not detained in federal custody except on firearms charges. The new indictment does not specify the group's plans, but says they intended to kill FBI and US military members.
"The indictment agrees that instead of conspiring there to commit deadly attacks on American soil," said New Mexico Attorney General, John C. Anderson, in a news statement. "These allegations remind us of the dangers of terrorism that continue to face our nation, and the allegation of the death of a young child does not underline the importance of prompt and effective law enforcement intervention. T . "
Previously, solicitors claimed that they were a misunderstanding as they were black Muslims.
The authorities have said that they believe the boy died because of his father Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, rather than giving him a seizure remedy. Due to difficulty in obtaining oxygen during the birth, Abdul-Ghani had many medical problems, including seizures, as well as cognitive and developmental delays. Before Wahhaj entered the desert with four adult relatives and 12 of their children around Christmas, at least one friend heard the man talking about "curse the child", said the friend of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last year.
According to Abdul-Ghani's mother, Wahhaj said he was giving the boy to Clayton County park one day in late 2017 and never returned. Instead, the dead child was found in a cave in the desert on August 6, 2018.
Wahhaj was arrested at the conference with his wife Jany Leveille, his sisters Hujrah Wahhaj and Subhanah Wahhaj, as well as husband Subhannah Wahhaj, Lucas Morton. New Mexico child welfare workers detained 11 children from the property.
