WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas veteran accused of illegally possessing explosives faces trial next week while attorneys wrangle over what evidence jurors will hear.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Tuesday set a hearing for July 16 in the case against Alfred Dutton. The Army and Marine veteran from Eureka faces trial later that day for unlawful possession of unregistered destructive devices.

His attorney is seeking to bar evidence about computer documents and photos of fireworks, chemicals and firearms.

Federal prosecutors say Dutton possessed one or more grenade bodies and the necessary parts to convert them into a destructive device.

The defense contends the inert grenades are not destructive devices, portraying the veteran as a collector of military items who was preparing to sell the collectible vintage hand grenades on eBay.
