— NPR's Mark Roberts reports from Denver on the conviction of Terry Nichols for conspiracy on some counts and the finding that he is not guilty of others in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing case. The jury delivered a mixed verdict: guilty of conspiracy to commit the bombing, but not guilty of murder; guilty of manslaughter in the deaths of eight federal agents, but not guilty in the deaths of the other 160 people who died from the explosion. Today, defense lawyers will move to prevent Nichols from receiving the death penalty.
