A federal jury Friday afternoon found two men not guilty in the trial of four men accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and deadlocked on all counts against the other two, leaving prosecutors with no convictions following a colorful, four-week trial.
Prosecutors alleged that Adam Fox, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta, all of Michigan; and Barry Croft, of Delaware, were associated with a militia group called the Wolverine Watchmen, which conducted combat training and formulated plans to kidnap Ms. Whitmer. Prosecutors said the men were angry with the Democratic governor’s policies to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
Prosecutors said the group had discussed different plans, including shooting Ms. Whitmer when she opened the door of her home, trying her for treason and executing her or putting her in a boat and abandoning her in Lake Michigan.
