    strictly the murder of so many people ?  I do not know why, but I keep thinking the bomb played a role in his charges or I may be mistaken. ???

      THat case seems factually different from the case at hand including some questions of mitigation like defendant's age, the  fact whether he was or was nto the ring leader, his statements not , so far being clearly political like mcveigh, etc.  ON top of that the  question marks over whether its a WMD to me seems like a case for life imprisonment, but who knows given the politics what will happen. The Miranda incident and the GOP among other issues tell me that facts and legal analysis may not mattter here.

      who convicted federally with a life sentence. OK wanted to try him for Murder in order to impose Capital Punishment. While he was convicted of murder, the jury deadlocked and couldn't impose the Death Penalty. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.
