Woodrings’ federal trial set for selling explosives in Centre Hall

James and Christine Woodring will be in a Williamsport court in July.

The Centre Hall couple have been charged in federal court with “knowingly and willfully” conspiring to operate an illegal business selling explosives, including mortars altered to make them more powerful.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Malachy Mannion entered a scheduling order in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

According to that order, jury selection and trial in the case will be held on July 25.

The order also sets other dates, including a deadline to file pretrial motions. That deadline is June 14.

A pretrial conference is slated for July 13.

James Woodring was arrested by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on May 20, just two days after the couple’s Centre Hall home exploded.
