The Saudi man accused of plotting to blow up George W. Bush’s Preston Hollow home has been found mentally competent for trial, a U.S. District Court judge determined this morning.
Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to build a weapon of mass destruction. U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings found Aldawsari able to understand the charges against him and able to assist his attorneys in his defense.
His trial is set to begin April 30, in Lubbock.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal has been following this case for awhile; they’ll probably be the best source for news on this.
