Jury selected for trial of bridge bomb plot suspect Joshua Stafford

AKRON, Ohio - The jury has been chosen in the case of Joshua Stafford, the last of five bridge bomb-plotting suspects, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

They said opening statements are expected to begin Tuesday morning.

No bomb went off and no one was injured in the plot last year. The intended target was a highway bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron.

The other four defendants have pleaded guilty and were given prison terms of six to 11 years.
