Timothy McVeigh is led from a courthouse in Perry, Oklahoma, after being charged in connection with the bombing. Two years later, he was convicted on 11 counts of murder, conspiracy and using a weapon of mass destruction. He was executed by lethal injection in 2001. His co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, was sentenced to life in prison. Both McVeigh and Nichols were former U.S. Army soldiers associated with the extreme right-wing Patriot Movement. The Patriot Movement rejects the legitimacy of the federal government and law enforcement.
