Jurors who will decide the fate of three militia members accused of conspiring to bomb an apartment complex housing Somalis in Kansas will not hear evidence about alleged child pornography found during searches.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren excluded the images found on a computer and drives Friday.

Patrick Stein, Gavin Wright, and Curtis Allen have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and conspiracy against civil rights. Stein also faces a weapons-related charge and Wright faces an additional charge of lying to the FBI.

The trial is set to begin Tuesday.

Stein pleaded not guilty in a separate case that will be tried in July accusing him of possession of child pornography.
