WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A judge has granted a prosecution request for more time to file a key motion in their case against a Wichita man accused of plotting an airport suicide bombing.

Avionics technician Terry Loewen has pleaded not guilty to charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Loewen was arrested Dec. 13 in a sting operation after allegedly trying to bring a van filled with inert explosives onto the tarmac Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita.

Prosecutors were facing a Friday deadline to file a motion under the federal Classified Information Procedures Act, which lays out the handling of national security material. On Friday, U.S. District Judge Monti Belot extended the deadline to April 21 after prosecutors argued the filing requires coordination and approval from officials at high levels of government.
