BIXBY, Okla. – The arrest of a man accused of the bombing of a Oklahoma military recruitment station has been delayed over concerns that he hasn’t received proper medical treatment in custody.
The Tulsa World reports that a federal judge on Wednesday delayed Benjamin Roden arrest and competency after the hearing his lawyer said Tulsa County jail officials were not following his doctor’s medication orders.
A pipe bomb exploded July 2017 in front of an empty Air Force recruiting station in the near of Tulsa. Roden was indicted and determined incompetent to stand trial.
He was transferred from federal prison to a prison of the province for the past month. The guards were instructed to inject Roden with his medication, but his lawyer says that he was imprisoned for more than a week before it is given medication in the form of pills.
The judge granted a continuance to Aug. 7.
