WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Prosecutors have narrowed their case against a 66-year-old Kansas veteran after an appeals court tossed out key evidence in a case charging him with unlawful possession of unregistered destructive devices.

Alfred C. Dutton, an Army and Marine veteran from Eureka, now faces a single federal count of unlawful possession of unregistered destructive devices.

The charge filed Tuesday accuses Dutton of having one or more grenade bodies and the parts needed to convert them into destructive devices. He has been summoned to appear in U.S. District Court on April 14.

An earlier count of possessing five jars of homemade napalm with fuses attached has been dropped.

His attorney has argued Dutton collected military items and was preparing to sell decorative and inoperable World War II-vintage hand grenades on eBay.
