VERNAL, Utah (AP) -- A judge has ordered a mental evaluation before one of the four teenagers charged in a plot to blow up Uintah High School last October is sentenced.

Todd Goodrich's plea of "guilty but mentally ill" was accepted by the judge for felony burglary and a misdemeanor charge of a terroristic threat for downloading the "Anarchist Cookbook" from the Internet.

Sentencing for the 18-year-old was set for April 20th.

That's the same day Steven Kuzler, another 18-year-old charged in the plot, is sentenced. Kunzler earlier pleaded guilty to the same two counts.

Goodrich is the last of four students to enter pleas in what prosecutors say they considered a serious plot to carry out a Columbine-like raid at Uintah High.

Two 16-year-olds charged in the plot reached plea agreements in juvenile court.
