Former Surrey couple accused in Canada Day bomb plot plead not guilty

Trial of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody, arrested in Abbotsford, scheduled to start Feb. 2.

A couple accused of plotting to set off pressure cooker bombs at the B.C. Legislature on Canada Day 2013 have pleaded not guilty.

John Nuttall and his wife Amanda Korody, who were living in a Surrey basement suite when they were arrested on conspiracy and terrorism-related charges in early July 2013, were in Vancouver Supreme Court on Tuesday (Jan. 13).

The court date was scheduled as jury selection. The pair entered their pleas prior to the selection process.

Nuttall was 38 and Korody 29 when they were arrested in Abbotsford July 1, 2013 and charged with making or possessing an explosive device, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and knowingly facilitating terrorist activity.

Police seized what they called three “improvised explosive devices” made from pressure cookers containing nails, nuts and bolts that were placed on the grounds of the legislative assembly where thousands of people were to gather for Canada Day celebrations.

B.C. RCMP said the arrest was made following a five-month investigation.

Fourteen jurors were to be chosen for the trial, which is scheduled to begin Feb. 2 and run for four-and-a-half months.
