OGDEN -- Prosecutors filed a charge of possession of a weapon of mass destruction this morning against Dallin Todd Morgan, 18, for what prosecutors say was his part in a plot to bomb Roy High School.


Morgan is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 1 in 2nd District Court on the first-degree felony charge.

He was released from jail on $10,000 bail shortly after his arrest Wednesday before a formal charge was filed.

Joshua Kyler Hoggan, 16, remained in custody in juvenile jail. A judge ruled against his release during a detention hearing in juvenile court this morning.

The two had plans to bomb an assembly at the school, then steal a plane from Ogden Hinckley Airport, police said.

"We ain't gonna crash it, we're just gonna kill and fly our way to a country that won't send us back to the US," Hoggan is quoted as texting a friend in charging documents.

The recipient alerted school authorities Wednesday, who then called police.
