The Woodburn bank bombing trial resumes today. The defense for Joshua and Bruce Turnidge calls its first witness today. The prosecution called over 130 witnesses over 19 days. Phil Whitley, an ATF explosives expert, the last State witness, testified that Trooper William Hakim did not set off the bomb that killed he and Woodburn Police Captain Tom Tennant. Whitley says instead, it could have been a garage door opener or perhaps a passing trucker using a CB radio.  Whitley conceded to defense attorneys it was not a good idea for Hakim to hammer on the box, but says that would not have set off the bomb. The Turnidges are facing the death penalty if convicted. Prosecutors say the father and son planted the bomb outside the West Coast Bank as part of a failed robbery plot.
