FARMINGTON -- A resolution could be reached in a case against a Syracuse man accused of teaching teenagers how to make the "Works" bomb.
Justin Breg Goodrich, 24, appeared in 2nd District Court on Monday. He is charged with six counts of possession of or reckless use of an incendiary device, all second-degree felonies. He pleaded not guilty to the charges July 11.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland said he and Goodrich's attorney have been negotiating and "are likely to have a resolution in about two weeks."
Another hearing has been set for Aug. 29. If the attorneys cannot come to an agreement, then the case will go to trial, Westmoreland said.
Syracuse police said residents called in June 2010, complaining of loud noises. Police found what is commonly known as the "Works" bomb that had been detonated on the sidewalk. The bombs are typically made by putting chemicals found in the home inside a 2-liter soda pop bottle.
Teenage boys involved told officers that an adult male who lived in the area taught them how to make the bombs.
