Testimony continues in 2003 Pa. collar bomb case

ERIE, Pa. (AP) - October 19, 2010

Witnesses testifying Monday in the trial of Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong put her near the alleged location of a note that prosecutors say Brian Wells was supposed to retrieve so he could defuse the bomb that had been locked around his neck.

Prosecutors say Diehl-Armstrong was a player in the bizarre robbery scheme that sent Wells into an Erie bank in 2003. Wells died when the bomb went off as police awaited the arrival of a bomb squad.

Two motorists who testified Monday said they saw Diehl-Armstrong near a spot on an interstate where authorities say the note was supposed to be.

Testimony is scheduled to continue Tuesday in federal court in Erie.
