Nichols on Trial Again for Okla. Bombing

The state murder trial of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols begins. Nichols is already serving a life sentence for his federal conviction for his role in the 1995 bombing. In opening statements, state prosecutors — who are seeking the death penalty — portray Nichols as Timothy McVeigh's right-hand man. The defense calls Nichols the fall guy in a wider conspiracy. Hear NPR's Wade Goodwyn.
