DETROIT (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Detroit are appealing a judge’s order to release nine jailed members of a Michigan militia accused of plotting to overthrow the government.

Prosecutors filed a one-page notice of intent to appeal on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts will decide whether to keep the militia members in jail or send them home pending the outcome of the appeal.

The nine are charged with conspiring to wage war against the government.

Judge Roberts on Monday ordered the suspects released until trial but suspended her decision until prosecutors could decide whether to appeal her ruling.
