Trial Date Set for West Explosion Trial

(KCEN) -- In our continuing coverage of the West fertilizer plant explosion, a judge has set a tentative date for the trial against the West Fertilizer Company.

That date? October 6, 2014.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting the date only gives lawyers a year to prepare for trial.

Fifteen people were killed as a result of the explosion in West in April of this year.

The explosion caused over $100 million dollars in damage.

CF Industries is alleged to have made the fertilizer that detonated after a fire engulfed the facility.

The company only had $1 million dollars in insurance.

The trial will be held in Waco district court.
