— NPR's Mark Roberts reports on the first day of the penalty phase of Terry Nichols' trial. Yesterday, the jury heard very emotional testimony as the prosecution called a string of witnesses who either survived the Oklahoma City bombing, or had their lives changed by the blast. Some of the witnesses included a man who lost his pregnant wife, and a policeman who combed the debris that was once the building's daycare center.
