ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A 30-year-old upstate New York man accused of plotting to kill members of the U.S. military won’t be back in court until early next year.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Feldman says the federal government’s evidence in the case against Mufid Elfgeeh is larger than anticipated and needs to be translated.

Elfgeeh, who is due back in court Jan. 6, appeared in court Wednesday for an update on his criminal case. He’s pleaded not guilty to charges he tried to recruit members for an Islamic terrorist organization and also sought to buy firearms and silencers to kill returning troops and Shi’a Muslims living in the Rochester area.

Federal prosecutors are still working on translating evidence seized from Elfgeeh’s social media accounts, as well as conversations he had with an undercover informant.
