Closings set for Ark. doctor charged in bombing

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - Closing arguments are set for Wednesday morning in the trial of an Arkansas doctor charged with planning a bombing at the home of the state medical board chairman.

Jurors considering the case of Dr. Randeep Mann could begin deliberations as soon as Wednesday afternoon.

Mann is charged in the February 2009 bombing that nearly killed Dr. Trent Pierce, the chairman of the Arkansas State Medical Board.

The trial began with jury selection on July 6 and attorneys began calling witnesses a week later.

Mann faces up to life in prison if convicted on the bombing charge. He's also accused of possessing unregistered weapons and both he and his wife, Sangeeta, face obstruction charges.
