AURORA, Ill. -- Two cousins from Aurora pleaded not guilty to charges connected with a terrorist plot to attack the Joliet Armory.

Prosecutors say Hasan Edmonds planned to travel to the Mideast to join ISIS, while his cousin Jonas Edmonds would stay behind in order to wear Hasan's uniform to gain access to the armory and kill as many people as he could.  Hasan is an Illinois National guardsman.

Both men were arrested late last month.   Hasan was taken into custody before boarding a plane at a Chicago airport.  Jonas was arrested in his home in Aurora.
