DETROIT — The wedding ring has been returned.

The leaders of a Michigan militia, who was acquitted in a high-profile case in Detroit that involved allegations of killing cops and revolting against the government, has finally gotten his wedding ring after two years, Ed White of the Associated Press reported.

The feds had seized the ring from the Hutaree militia leader David Stone Sr. along with other items including credit cards and military-style gear. Stone, his wife Tina and five other members were acquitted of the charges of revolting against the government.

On Friday, Stone and his wife Tina parked a pickup and trailer outside a fed building in downtown Detroit where the FBI is housed and collected their belongings — including the ring and military gear — from FBI employees, AP reported.

The acquittals in March were a major embarrassment  to the federal government. Defense attorneys all along had said the case was bogus. The feds insisted the threats and the plotting were real.
