NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports that Oklahoma City District Attorney Wes Lane has decided to file state murder charges against Terry Nichols. Nichols is already serving a life sentence in federal prison for his role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. But until now, Lane had hesitated to retry Nichols because of the emotional and financial costs involved.
