TULSA, Okla. — An Elk Grove Village native accused in a failed plot to firebomb Oklahoma churches has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.
Gregory Arthur Weiler II was found not guilty Friday on a charge of possessing an unregistered, destructive device.
Prosecutors accused Weiler of plotting to bomb 48 churches in Ottawa County, though no explosives were set off and no one was injured.
In documents filed Friday, both prosecutors and Weiler’s defense attorney agreed that Weiler suffered from a mental disorder that made him unable to understand the nature or wrongfulness of his actions.
