A federal grand jury indicted Ryan D. King, 37, of Franklin, and Randy D. Goodman, 53, of Ripley, on charges of possessing unregistered explosives and conspiring to possess a destructive device, a violation of the National Firearms Act. The indictments were unsealed Monday, and both men were arrested that day.
Both men were taken before a magistrate judge in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati on Monday for initial appearances and on Wednesday for a detention hearing. U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Litkovitz concluded that both men should be detained pending trial. Both men are being held without bond in the Butler County Jail.
