OKLAHOMA SUSPECTS INDICTED
Four months after the nation's deadliest terrorist attack, a federal grand jury indicted the two prime suspects in the Oklahoma City case, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, on bombing and murder charges that could bring the death penalty to both. The indictment identified McVeigh as the driver who detonated the truck bomb. As part of a deal with prosecutors, Michael Fortier, a close Army buddy of McVeigh's, pleaded guilty to lesser charges, including lying and failing to notify authorities about the crime. He is expected to become the government's star witness.
