Indictment deadline extended for Pa. bomb suspect

JOHNSTOWN, Pennsylvania (AP) — A federal judge has extended the deadline for prosecutors to indict a Russian-born college student accused of building bombs in his central Pennsylvania apartment.

The Altoona Mirror ( ) reports U.S. District Judge Kim Gibson, who previously extended the deadline to March 24, has extended it another month while attorneys for 18-year-old Vladislav Miftakhov and the government negotiate the charges to be filed.

Gibson has previously ruled the former Penn State-Altoona student, whose family lives in San Carlos, Calif., should remain jailed while his case moves forward.

He was arrested Jan. 24 when police acted on a landlord's tip that Miftakhov was growing marijuana and also found bomb making materials in his off-campus apartment.

Miftakhov's attorney has said his client didn't intend to harm anyone with the bombs.
