An Islamic State (ISIS) supporter in Arizona who is accused of aiding the men who attacked a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in May now faces charges he tried to bomb the Super Bowl, CNN reports.

Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, aka Decarus Thomas, also is accused of accessing an ISIS document that contained the names and addresses of U.S. military personnel.

Kareem's earlier indictment was tied to providing arms and advice to Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi to carry out an attack on the cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. Both were shot to death on May 3 by a police officer before they were able to enter the facility where the contest was taking place and before they could injure anyone else.

Before that, the three men are believed to have plotted unsuccessfully to bomb the Super Bowl XLIX that was played at University of Phoenix Stadium on Feb. 1.

Their plan to aide ISIS began before that, back in June 2014, according to the indictment. Other possible targets included military bases, U.S. service members and shopping malls. They reportedly practiced in remote desert areas, and Kareem is charged with carrying firearms and ammunition across state lines.

The trio watched violent extremist videos depicting executions and attempted to obtain pipe bombs.
