Trial in Bishop International Airport (KFNT) stabbing put off until July 30



FLINT, Mich. — The case of a Canadian man charged with stabbing a police officer at Flint's Bishop International Airport isn't on a fast track.

A judge agreed Friday to extend important deadlines while federal investigators and defense lawyers collect and review evidence, especially in Montreal where Amor Ftouhi lived.

Ftouhi is accused of stabbing a police officer in the neck at Bishop Airport last June.

Investigators say the native of Tunisia yelled "Allahu Akbar," the Arabic phrase for "God is great." Lt. Jeff Neville survived.

Federal Judge Linda Parker set a July 30 trial.

She also set May 23 as the day for any plea deal.

Ftouhi legally entered the U.S. at Champlain, New York, on June 16, five days before the attack.
