Two former Ku Klux Klansmen pleaded guilty in Charleston, S.C., to federal charges that they conspired to burn down a rural black church and a migrant labor camp last year. The fires, both in Bloomville, destroyed Macedonia Baptist Church and a migrant labor camp about 80 miles north of Charleston. Hubert "Herbert" Rowell, 50, and Arthur A. Haley, 51, pleaded guilty to four conspiracy counts. Each faces up to 60 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
