A Toledo man accused of plotting with his girlfriend to obtain guns and explosives for a foiled domestic terror attack has pleaded guilty in federal court. 

Sentencing is pending for 23-year-old Vincent Armstrong, who pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge related to conspiring to transport or receive an explosive with intent to cause harm. Prosecutors say Armstrong and his girlfriend talked about taking part in violent attacks on public places, visited the site of the Columbine High School massacre, and had bomb-making materials and weapons in their home. They were arrested in December. Authorities allege Armstrong's girlfriend drove the plans. She has pleaded not guilty.
