A hospital worker in Ohio has been charged with calling for US soldiers to be beheaded in their homes on social media.
He has been charged with three counts of solicitation of a crime of violence and threatening military personnel.
He was arrested for supporting ISIS on November 12.
Prosecutors alleged in a federal indictment published on Tuesday that 25 year-old Terrence J. McNeil was supportive of the Islamic State on social media and had posted the names and addresses of 100 serving US military personnel on his Tumblr account.
The post was allegedly a repost of leaked information put out by a group calling itself the “Islamic State hacking division.”
McNeil “solicited the murder of members of our military by disseminating violent rhetoric, circulating detailed U.S. military personnel information, and explicitly calling for the killing of American service members in their homes and communities” said Assistant U.S. Attorney General John Carlin.
