RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia man charged with plotting to shoot up or bomb synagogues and black churches is scheduled to plead guilty Friday.

Court records show a plea agreement hearing has been set for 34-year-old Robert C. Doyle in federal court in Richmond. Doyle’s lawyer did not immediately return a telephone message.

Doyle faces robbery conspiracy and firearms charges. A co-defendant, 30-year-old Charles D. Halderman, pleaded guilty to robbery conspiracy last month. Thirty-three-year-old Ronald B. Chaney III faces the same charges as Doyle.

FBI officials said in a court affidavit that Doyle and Chaney are white supremacists who bought guns and explosives from undercover agents. The affidavit says those two and Halderman planned to rob a Richmond-area silver and coin dealer and use the money to finance a race war.
