      Explosive day in trial of Lenawee Co based militia

      A dramatic day in the trial of seven members of a Lenawee County based militia.

      Jurors watched video of bombs made by investigators from materials and diagrams linked to the group.

      The jury heard loud booms and saw close up photos of the impact the explosives had on cars.

      The members of the Hutaree militia are accused of plotting to rebel against the government with weapons of mass destruction.

      Prosecutors rested their case Thursday after five weeks of testimony.

      The defense says the defendants are guilty of distasteful anti-government talk but had no specific plans to attack anyone.
