JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — A West Tennessee man accused of plotting to kill then-Sen. Barack Obama and dozens of other black people in 2008 has had a court date reset for March 29.

Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Cowart had been scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Jackson on Monday.

The Jackson Sun reports Cowart's attorney, Joe Byrd Jr., needs time to negotiate options with the federal prosecutor.

Co-defendant, 19-year-old Paul Schlesselman of Helena-West Helena, Ark., pleaded guilty last month to charges that included threatening to kill a presidential candidate. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

Authorities have described the two as white supremacist skinheads who hatched a plot for a cross-country robbery and killing spree that was to culminate with an attack on Obama.
