HINESVILLE, Ga. -- A former Army medic has pleaded guilty to destroying evidence in a double slaying to protect what prosecutors say was a militia group operating within the military at Fort Stewart in southeast Georgia.

Former Pfc. Christopher Jenderseck was allowed to avoid further jail time in the plea deal he agreed to Monday.

He's among 10 people jailed and accused by prosecutors of belonging to a group that plotted to bomb a Savannah park fountain, poison apples in Washington state and assassinate the president. Eight of the suspects are current and former Fort Stewart soldiers.
