ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A judge delayed the possible plea deals for two of the four young men accused in a bomb plot against a small Muslim community. 

According to the Monroe County Court docket, Vincent Vetromile, 20, and Andrew Crysel, 19, were scheduled for "possible pleas" at a hearing Friday morning, but the appearance has been postponed until June 20.

Investigators say the pair, along with Brian Colaneri and Nicholas Pheilshifter, planned an attack on Islamberg, a hamlet near Binghamton.

The suspects, who were arrested in January, are facing several felony charges. Police say one of three makeshift bombs found in Vetromile's home in Greece were "functional."

On Thursday, a judge dropped weapons charges in the case against Colaneri. 

Vetromile and Crysel are set to appear at the Hall of Justice in Rochester at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
