JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A court hearing continues in Jackson for two white supremacists accused of plotting to kill President Barack Obama and dozens of other black people.

Lawyers for 20-year-old Daniel Cowart of Bells, Tenn., and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman of Helena-West Helena, Ark., are trying to get government evidence against the pair dismissed by federal Judge J. Daniel Breen.

They have been held in jail without bond since their arrests in late October and contend they were searched and arrested without proper legal cause.

The hearing began Thursday and was expected to continue on Friday.

Among items investigators seized were firearms, swords and rifle ammunition with names written on the bullet casings. Police have not said whose names were written.
