BOSTON, Mass. (WPRI) — A Warwick man arrested on charges of conspiring to support ISIS will be staying in jail.

Lawyers for Nicholas Rovinski and alleged co-conspirator David Wright asked a judge to cancel a detention hearing scheduled for July 29. The Attorneys says the volume of evidence they have to review for the case is overwhelming. Rovinski and Wright voluntarily agreed to remain behind bars while they await trial.

Investigators say the pair is connected to a plot involving Usaamah Rahim. He claimed he was going to kill police officers in the Boston area.

Rahim was shot and killed by authorities, who say he came at them with a large knife when they tried to question him.
