A man arrested at a ramshackle New Mexico compound where 11 hungry children were found living in filth was training youngsters to commit school shootings, prosecutors say in court documents.
The allegations against Siraj Ibn Wahhaj came to light as authorities awaited word on whether human remains discovered at the site were those of his missing son, who is severely disabled and went missing in December in Jonesboro, Ga.
The documents say Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound on the outskirts of Amalia. Authorities raided the compound last month.
