A former high school math teacher and his twin brother have pleaded guilty in Manhattan to federal explosive charges on Monday.

Christian Toro and Tyler Toro, 28-year-old brothers from the Bronx, admitted to stockpiling explosive materials and paying students to help them. They were arrested last February after a bomb threat call into a Harlem charter school by students. When authorities searched the brothers apartment, they found numerous components to make bombs. Christian and Tyler also reportedly paid students to store the explosive powder they found in dismantled fireworks. Christian had also bomb-making instructions on his laptop.

Their sentencing trial is scheduled on March 26, they face up to 10 years in prison.
