A federal judge in Lubbock has pushed back until May the trial date for a Saudi man accused of trying to make a weapon of mass destruction.

U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings on Tuesday set a May 14 trial date for Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari. He had been set to go to trial on Jan. 9.

Court documents allege he planned to attack various U.S. targets, including former President George W. Bush's home in Dallas and sites in New York City.

The U.S. college student from Saudi Arabia has pleaded not guilty.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports that the assistant U.S. attorney handling the case had filed a motion Monday asking to extend filing deadlines.

Earlier this month, Aldawsari's attorney filed a notice that he will use an insanity defense.
