A 30-year-old Rochester, New York, man was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury for allegedly attempting to aid ISIS and planning to kill U.S. troops returning from Iraq.

Mufid Elfgeeh, who was arrested in May, has been charged with three counts of attempting to provide material support and resources to ISIS, one count of attempted murder of current and former members of the U.S. military, and federal weapons offenses, the Justice Department said in a news release. If convicted of all charges, he could receive life in prison.
