The Mail Tribune reports the trial for 46-year-old Alan Leroy McVay of White City is scheduled for Feb. 11.

He's charged with damaging the building with an explosion Nov. 13. Prosecutors say he hoped to avoid a sentencing the next day on a burglary charge.

Investigators say he taped a pipe bomb to a propane tank and threw it at the office window. It broke the window but did little other damage because the tank did not explode.
