Attorneys For Terry Loewen Expect Trial To Focus On Entrapment
Attorneys for a man accused of planning a suicide bombing at Wichita's Mid-Continent airport say they expect the trial to focus on what they call entrapment and outrageous government conduct.
On Tuesday, attorneys for 58-year-old Terry L. Loewen of Wichita opposed many rules that prosecutors want for national security reasons.
Lowen's attorneys say the government wants to micro-manage the defense's handling of evidence.
They believe some information will show how the FBI transformed the former Marine into an alleged terrorist prepared to commit suicide for al-Qaida.
Investigators allege that Loewen tried to bring what he believed was a car bomb onto the airport tarmac on Dec. 13.
A hearing is scheduled for February 10th.
