WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 67-year-old veteran convicted of possessing grenades at his Eureka apartment is scheduled to be sentenced in October.

A federal judge Friday set an Oct. 21 sentencing date for Alfred Dutton. A federal jury this week convicted Dutton of one count of unlawful possession of unregistered explosive devices.

Dutton faces up to 10 years in federal prison, although he is likely to get far less time under sentencing guidelines.

Prosecutors told jurors at his trial in Wichita that Dutton added chemicals to gunpowder to increase the explosive power of the grenades he was making.

His defense attorney portrayed his client as a tinkerer who was experimenting with making fireworks and was working on creating a mock grenade that he planned to sell on eBay.
