West Explosion

A McLennan County judge has refused to postpone the first trial related to the deadly fertilizer plant explosion in West that happened more than two years ago. On Friday Judge Jim Meyer denied the defense request to postpone the trial- which is set to begin October 12th, involving relatives of three men killed in the blast. An attorney for a nitrate supplier to the plant tried to delay the trial which has already been postponed twice, after receiving new evidence from the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. In all, more than two hundred plaintiffs including families of those who died, the city, a nursing home and an apartment complex are suing over the April 2013 blast.
