Terry Nichols to be tried for civilian deaths in Oklahoma City bombing

Terry Nichols, the Oklahoma City bombing conspirator who is already serving life in federal prison, will stand trial in state court on 160 counts of first-degree murder that could bring the death penalty, a judge ruled Tuesday.
