JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A 19-year-old Jacksonville man was charged Thursday with planning to fight in an overseas holy war he and others trained for while seeking guidance from terrorists, including the late Osama bin Laden.

Shelton Thomas Bell, in jail since January in an unrelated case, also is accused of using his training to stage a night "mission" last year that damaged religious statues at a cemetery near his East Arlington home, said an indictment returned by a federal grand jury Thursday.
