WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has set a status hearing in the case of a Kansas avionics technician accused of planning a suicide bombing at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport.
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Tuesday scheduled the hearing in the case of 58-year-old Terry L. Loewen for Feb. 10.
The Wichita man was arrested in December following an undercover operation. Investigators allege Loewen tried to get what he believed was a car bomb onto the tarmac of the airport, where he worked.
Charges include attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted material support to al-Qaida.
Federal prosecutors want the case designated as ``complex'' to ease speedy trial concerns. Trial is set for Feb. 18.
Prosecutors also want a hearing on the handling of classified information during court proceedings.
