BISMARCK -- The trial for a flight attendant accused of fabricating an in-flight bomb scare that prompted an emergency landing at Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Regional Airport has been delayed.

Justin Cox-Sever of Tempe, Ariz., was scheduled for a three-day trial in federal court in Bismarck starting Tuesday. Judge Daniel Hovland granted a defense motion to delay it for two months.

The trial was rescheduled to begin Feb. 23.

Cox-Sever is accused of stuffing a bag with towels and reporting it as a suspicious package on a Delta Air Lines flight from Minneapolis to Dickinson on Sept. 9.

The airport was temporarily shut down after the plane landed.
