MURRAY, Ky. (AP) — Murray State University Police have charged a student with having explosives in his dormitory room.
David Matthew Wilson was released on a cash bond after being charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, according to The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/ysNfQb ). The 18-year-old Wilson was released to his father, who lives in Florissant, Mo., and he must stay off the campus.
An affidavit by campus police stated Wilson consented to a search of his room on Jan. 31. Police stated they found black powder mixed with ammonium nitrate, a pipe and a fuse.
University spokeswoman Catherine Sivills said the dangerous materials were removed from campus.
Wilson is scheduled to appear in Calloway District Court Feb. 15. His attorney, Ricky A. Lamkin of Murray, declined comment.
