BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -
The Green Township man accused in a terror-related plot to blow up the U.S. Capitol and shoot government employees and members of Congress was transferred from the Butler County Jail to the Boone County Jail Friday.
According to the Boone County Jail, Christopher Cornell, 20, was booked into Boone County Jail Friday. He is listed as "federal prisoner held-in transit."
Judge Bowman ruled that Cornell was a threat to the community and a flight risk.
Cornell's attorney, Karen Savir, asked the judge to force the Butler County Jail to allow Cornell a prayer rug and a clock to perform scheduled prayers. In addition, asked to have Cornell off isolation.
Friday was the first time that Cornell had faced a federal judge since being arrested Wednesday.
