 Two members of a Michigan-based militia who are accused of conspiring to overthrow the government have been released from jail until trial.

David Stone Jr. and Jacob Ward — a resident of Huron — were released to family members Tuesday after appearing in federal court in Detroit. A third, Tina Stone, is expected to be released later Tuesday. Sandusky resident Kristopher Sickles is still behind bars.

The three being released must wear electronic monitors and follow strict conditions set by a judge.

The U.S. attorney’s office is appealing the release of six other militia members.

They are charged with conspiring to commit sedition, or rebellion, against the government and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction. Prosecutors had long argued that all were too dangerous to be out until trial.
