An Ottawa County judge ruled Gregory Weiler is mentally competent to stand trial.

He's the Illinois man accused of plotting to blow up Oklahoma churches. Investigators say they found bomb-making materials in Weiler's Miami motel room, along with a list of 48 churches and an outline to plant bombs.

Weiler is being held without bond. He is charged with threatening to use an explosive device and violating the Oklahoma Anti-terrorism Act.

Weiler's preliminary hearing is set for February 7.
