McVeigh Trial Closing Day

NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports on the concluding day of defense testimony in the trial of Oklahoma City bombing defendant Timothy McVeigh. Defense attorney Stephen Jones concentrated on trying to discredit star prosecution witnesses Michael and Lori Fortier, who testified earlier that McVeigh had told them in advance about his plans to bomb the Murrah Federal Building. Jones portrayed the Fortiers as drug-using liars who hoped to makemoney on the talk show circuit.
