Trial Delayed For Terror Suspects

Joe Denoyer - June 2, 2017 1:46 pm

A judge has delayed until next year the trial of three Kansas men accused of plotting to attack Somali immigrants in the meatpacking town of Garden City.

The trial for Curtis Wayne Allen, Patrick Eugene Stein and Gavin Wayne Wright had been scheduled to begin June 13. But U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren granted on Friday the men’s request for a continuance and set the trial to begin Feb. 20. Trial is expected to last four weeks.

His written order follows a hearing Wednesday in which defense attorneys asked for more time to review the large amount of evidence. Prosecutors also had not yet turned over to the defense some discovery.

The three men are accused of conspiring to detonate truck bombs at an apartment complex where Somali immigrants live.
