Final arguments set in Scottsdale bombing trialFinal arguments set in Ariz. trial of white supremacists accused of bombing black official
PHOENIX (AP) ' Attorneys are set to give their final arguments Tuesday in the trial of two white supremacist brothers accused of bombing a city official in Arizona because he is black.
After the closing arguments wrap up, a jury will deliberate about whether to convict identical twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon of Illinois.
The 61-year-old brothers have pleaded not guilty to three charges stemming from the bombing.
The men are accused of sending a package bomb to Don Logan almost eight years ago to the day, on Feb. 26, 2004.
Logan is black and was the diversity director for the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale at the time.
The trial began Jan. 10 after multiple delays due to an overwhelming amount of evidence in the case.
