US women due in court in Philadelphia in terrorism case

(Associated Press) Two American women charged in a global terrorism plot allegedly aimed at killing a Swedish artist are due in court in Philadelphia.

Court papers show the case is largely built on e-mails and online postings allegedly made by 46-year-old Colleen LaRose of Pennsburg and 31-year-old Jamie Paulin-Ramirez of Leadville, Colo.

The Colorado woman’s defense lawyer, Jeremy Ibrahim, says he will ask Monday for copies of computer evidence. A judge may have to screen it first because prosecutors say some of it may be classified.

LaRose is also expected to enter a plea to a superseding indictment. Both women have previously pleaded not guilty. They were arrested this year after returning from Europe.
