COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new trial date has been set for an Ohio man charged with plotting a U.S. attack after receiving overseas training.

Columbus resident Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud (ab-dee-RAH’-mahn shayk moh-HAH’-mud) has pleaded not guilty to charges of supporting terrorism, supporting a terrorist group and making a false statement involving international terrorism.

Judge James Graham on Friday rescheduled the trial until April 18 at the request of government prosecutors and Mohamud’s attorney. The trial had been set to begin Jan. 4.

The 24-year-old Mohamud is accused of receiving training on weapons, combat and tactics in Syria, then returning to the U.S. with a plan to attack a military base or a prison.
