the nearly three dozen victims relatives rescuers and police who have testified in support of the prosecutions plea for the death penalty Nichols showed no reaction as Kay Ice Fulton of Beaumont Texas

and protecting Prosecutors contend Nichols and codefendant Timothy McVeigh hatched the bomb plot to retaliate against the government for the deadly FBI siege at Waco in 1993 The blast destroyed the ninestory Alfred P Murrah federal building killing 168 people and injuring more than 500 While the 29yearold McVeigh was convicted earlier this year on all 11 murder and conspiracy charges and
