WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has granted a defense request to delay the trial of a Kansas veteran accused of illegally possessing explosives

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Wednesday rescheduled until July 16 the trial for Alfred Dutton because of a scheduling conflict. The Army and Marine veteran from Eureka had been set to go to trial on May 7.

Dutton is charged with unlawful possession of unregistered destructive devices. He is accused of having possessed one or more grenade bodies and the necessary parts to convert them into a destructive device.

An appeals court earlier this year ruled evidence should have been suppressed from a storage unit where jars of homemade napalm with fuses attached were found. The appeals court said authorities lacked reason to suspect criminal activity.
