Christmas Day underwear bomb investigation could be resolved with deal

Posted:

DETROIT (WKOW) -- The so-called Christmas Day underwear bomb plot could be resolved with a deal.

Lawyers for the Nigerian charged with trying to blow up a plane near Detroit on Christmas say they've talked to prosecutors about resolving the case with a deal.

The disclosure was made Thursday in a court filing that seeks a new deadline to challenge evidence against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

The deadline is Friday.

Abdulmutallab is accused of trying to set off a bomb hidden in his underwear aboard a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit last year. He's due in federal court Monday for a pretrial hearing.

The court filing says attorneys have met with prosecutors on "multiple occasions" to "explore options for resolution of this case."
