A four-day trial to determine if the FBI has done an adequate search for additional videos of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing has come to a close in Salt Lake City.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups didn't issue a ruling Thursday. Instead, he requested final court briefs summarizing arguments from both sides: FBI attorneys and Jesse Trentadue, the Utah man who filed the lawsuit against the federal agency.

A ruling is likely months away.

The FBI on Thursday capped off its attempt to persuade Waddoups that it is not hiding unreleased surveillance videos by bringing witnesses who testified that there have never been any security-camera videos of the bomb going off.

Trentadue says he still believes there is a video showing McVeigh was not alone in detonating the bomb.

Trentadue says he believes the presence of a second suspect explains why his brother, who resembled a police sketch of a suspect, was flown to Oklahoma months after the bombing. His brother died in a federal holding cell.
