Kansas Bomb Plot Case Assigned to Judge Monti Belot

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2013

The case of a Kansas avionics technician accused of plotting to bring a bomb into an airport in Wichita has been assigned to an experienced federal judge known for running a tight courtroom in complex cases.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot will be overseeing the case of 58-year-old Terry Lee Loewen of Wichita. Trial was set for Feb. 18.

A grand jury indicted Loewen Wednesday for attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, attempted use of an explosive device to damage property and attempted material support to the terrorist group al-Qaida.

Belot presided over the 2011 trial of a man accused of lying about his role in the Rwandan genocide. He also oversaw the 2010 trial of the couple who ran a Haysville clinic linked to 68 overdose deaths.
