LEITH, N.D. (AP) - A white supremacist who tried to take over a small North Dakota town has sold his house there.

Leith Mayor Ryan Schock tells The Bismarck Tribune that 62-year-old Craig Cobb sold the home to a resident of nearby Carson, and KXMB-TV reports that Grant County records confirm that.

The buyer declined comment to The Associated Press.

Cobb is accused of terrorizing Leith residents with guns last November. He has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of felony terrorizing and remains jailed. He could face up to 35 years in prison if convicted.

A district judge on Monday gave attorneys in the case three weeks to try to work out a plea deal.

Cobb purchased a dozen lots in Leith after moving there about two years ago, and still owns three.
