Trial set to begin for Ariz. bombing suspects

Trial set to begin for twin Illinois brothers accused of bombing Arizona diversity director By The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) ' The trial begins Tuesday in Phoenix for two white supremacist brothers charged in a 2004 bombing that injured a black city official in Scottsdale.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys will begin selecting jurors in the case of twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon. Opening statements could begin in the afternoon or on Wednesday.

Their trial date has been extended several times since their June 2009 arrest at their home in Davis Junction, Ill., because of the extensive amount of evidence in the case.

They pleaded not guilty in the Feb. 26, 2004, bombing in which a package detonated in the hands of Don Logan, Scottsdale's diversity director at the time. It injured Logan's hand and arm and hurt a secretary.

The trial is expected to last two months.
