OKLAHOMA CITY: Cole reports that the Oklahoma County District Attorney is dead set on bringing others involved in the attack to justice. DA Robert Macy said he's going to move forward with a trial after Terry Nichols receives his day in court. Cole says the district attorney: "is not satisfied with the Fed's focusing on just McVeigh and Terry Nichols. He thinks John Doe 2 is still out there and he wants to go after some of the smaller players, like Michael Fortier." Macy also argues that the state trial is needed because the untested terrorism law under which McVeigh was convicted might not withstand appeals. But many in Oklahoma would rather see quicker closure in the case so they can move on with their lives. "I just don't see the point of putting the family members, this city through another big trial," Bud Welch, whose daughter Julie died in the bombing, told TIME. "You can only convict a person so many times."
