Bob Phillips admits his proposal to his wife Gail wasn't the most romantic.
A man and woman, who, police alleged, plotted to ambush and kill a Metro officer, appeared in court on Thursday.
A judge decided Devon Newman, 67, and David Brutsche, 42, will stand trial. Brutsche is set for initial arraignment on Sept. 30 at 1:30 p.m. Newman is next set to appear in court on Oct. 8 at 9:30 a.m.
The two, who police identified as members of the "sovereign citizens" movement, were arrested in August following a five-month investigation into an operation involving the pair.
An arrest report alleged the couple wanted to kidnap a police officer, try the officer in "sovereign" court for treason and then execute the officer.
The two were originally charged with counts of conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and attempted first-degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon.
On Sept. 10, prosecutors, though, dropped the conspiracy to commit murder and attempted first-degree kidnapping charges for both suspects. A judge also set bail for Brutsche and Newman, although both remain held at Clark County Detention Center, according to an inmate database.
Both suspects told FOX5 during jailhouse interviews that they never intended to harm any police officers, but rather shed light on officers who violate the civil rights of others.
