AKRON, Ohio — The FBI arrested an Akron man on a terrorism-related charge Thursday, accusing him of soliciting the killing of members of the military in the name of an Islamic extremist group.
Terrence McNeil, 25, is charged with one count of solicitation of a crime of violence. He appeared Thursday in federal court, shackled and dressed in a white T-shirt and blue gym shorts.
Magistrate Judge Kathleen Burke signed the warrant for McNeil’s arrest on Wednesday. The FBI arrested McNeil the following morning at his apartment on Eastgay Drive.
