(Oklahoma City-AP) -- More than 400 witnesses could be called during the state murder trial of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols.

Prosecutors have filed a list of 414 potential witnesses with the Oklahoma County court clerk. The list could grow if more victims' relatives want to testify.

Nichols faces 161 state counts of first-degree murder for his role in the 1995 bombing. His trial is to begin March first in McAlester and the state is seeking the death penalty.

Nichols is serving life in prison on federal convictions for conspiracy and involuntary manslaughter for the deaths of eight federal agents.

The state trial is for the deaths of 160 others and that of an unborn child.
