OGDEN — A student accused of a plot to bomb Roy High School has opted to have a hearing on the evidence against him.
Dallin Todd Morgan, 18, will have a preliminary hearing May 14 for use of a weapon of mass destruction, a first-degree felony, attorney Pete Lowe confirmed.
Morgan and fellow Roy High classmate Joshua Kyler Hoggan, 16, were arrested Jan. 25 after a student at the school alerted officials of some disturbing text messages. Hoggan is facing the same charge in 2nd District Juvenile Court. Prosecutors, however, are attempting to certify him as an adult.
Police believe the pair was planning to bomb the school during an assembly and escape on an airplane they intended to steal from nearby Ogden-Hinckley Airport.
Police did not locate any explosives in their investigation, but the elements of the charges against both Morgan and Hoggan include possessing, displaying, attempting to use, soliciting the use of, or conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, or that they assisted, encouraged or solicited someone else to do the same.
A hearing on whether to certify Hoggan to stand trial as an adult has been slated for May.
