FBI Recording to be Allowed In Bombing Trial

There's been a setback for the defense of a man suspected of killing four African-American girls in a 1963 Birmingham church bombing.

Thomas Blanton, Junior's attorney was trying to prevent jurors from hearing a secretly recorded tape made by the FBI in Blanton's kitchen. Tuesday the Alabama Supreme Court rejected the former klansman's motion to bar it from the trial.

Prosecutors say Blanton played a role in blowing up the 16th Street Baptist Church. He could serve life in prison if he's convicted. Questioning of potential jurors will resume Thursday.
