OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The FBI is asking a federal judge in Utah to reconsider his decision allowing a Utah attorney to videotape an interview with Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and another inmate.

Federal Judge Dale Kimball has ruled that attorney Jesse Trentadue should be allowed to interview Nichols and convicted killer David Paul Hammer who was on death row with bomber Timothy McVeigh.

The FBI says the federal Bureau of Prisons has determined the video recording process would be a security threat to the prisons where Nichols and Hammer are being held.

Trentadue is looking for information to support his theory his brother Kenneth was killed at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center in August 1995 during an interrogation.

He contends authorities mistook his brother for a bombing suspect who Trentadue says was bank robber Richard Guthrie.
