JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Defense lawyers say they haven't yet seen the government's evidence against two young white supremacists accused of plotting to kill President-elect Barack Obama.

At a brief federal court hearing Friday in Jackson, defense attorneys for Daniel Cowart of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman of Helena-West Helena, Ark., said they were still getting evidence from the government, including what they expect to be voluminous files from their clients' home computers.

Authorities described Cowart and Schlesselman as white supremacist skinheads who met over the Internet and hatched a plot to kill dozens of black people, wrapping up their crime spree with an attack on Obama.

Judge J. Daniel Breen set Apr. 17 for the next court hearing to discuss how the case is progressing.
