HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Two central Pennsylvania men are accused of participating in the mob attack on the U.S. Capitol earlier this year. Their social media communications have been cited by federal prosecutors as evidence against them. A U.S. Justice Department news release says 25-year-old Marshall Neefe of Newville and 25-year-old Brad Smith of Shippensburg both face felony charges over their alleged roles in the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol. Prosecutors said Neefe carried a wooden club and helped push a metal sign into a defensive police line. Messages were left Tuesday seeking comment from federal public defenders in Harrisburg and at a phone number linked to Neefe.
