PHOENIX (AP) - A Jan. 14 trial has been scheduled for a man on charges that he helped plan an attack on a provocative Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas that ended with two Phoenix men being killed in a shootout with police.

Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem is accused of hosting the gunmen at his home beginning in January and providing the guns used in the May 3 shooting in Garland, Texas.

Kareem has pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

An indictment says Kareem practiced shooting with the men who would later carry out the Texas attack in remote desert outside Phoenix between January and May.

Authorities say Kareem also had aspirations to join the Islamic State terrorist organization and attack the Super Bowl when it was in Arizona earlier this year.
