Nichols' Ex Testifies

— NPR's Mark Roberts reports on the prosecution testimony of Terry Nichols' former wife, Lana Pedilla, in the Oklahoma City bombing trial. Pedilla said that her former husband's behavior in late 1994 led her to believe he was preparing to die. She also testified about Nichols' experience with the kind of farm chemical used in the bomb that destroyed the federal building in April 1995. Nichols is accused of helping convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh plan and prepare for the bombing that killed 168 people and injured hundreds more.
