Bombing Conspirator Nichols Faces State Hearing

Convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols heads to court again on Monday as local prosecutors try to convict him on state murder charges and send him to the death chamber. Nichols, 48, is serving a life sentence after being convicted in 1997 on federal charges of conspiracy and the manslaughter of eight federal officers in the 1995 bombing that killed 168 people. State prosecutors ultimately want Nichols to receive lethal injection in Oklahoma’s death chamber if he is convicted on 161 state murder charges. Prosecutors recently added another murder charge against Nichols for a fetus whose mother was killed in the bombing. The preliminary hearing scheduled for Monday will determine if there is enough evidence to bring Nichols to trial on the murder charges. The preliminary hearing has been delayed numerous times because of legal wrangling and problems with funding for Nichols’ defense. Full Story
