DETROIT (WWJ) – An attorney is asking for a new trial date in the case of a Nigerian accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound plane, this comes after federal prosecutors recently delivered more evidence in the case.

The deadline to challenge evidence is June 24, and a trial for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is scheduled Oct. 4th.

Attorney Anthony Chambers asks both dates be changed.

Abdulmutallab is charged with trying to blow up a plane as it approached Detroit from Amsterdam on Christmas Day 2009. Eleven crew members and 279 passengers were aboard.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
