SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Salt Lake City lawyer is suing the F-B-I, claiming it's investigation of the 1995 Oklahome City bombings holds clues in his brother's death.

Attorney Jesse Trentadue claims the F-B-I has violated the federal Freedom of Information Act by refusing to turn over documents related to his brother's death in an Oklahoma prison in 1995. The feds say they have complied, and want the lawsuit thrown out.

Trentadue's brother, Kenneth, was found hanging in his federal prison cell in Oklahoma just months after the bombing.

His family rules out suicide and insists he was killed. Authorities deny those allegeations.

Trentadue believes the F-B-I mistakenly suspected his brother was part of a gang that robbed banks to fund attacks on the government. He also says at one time, the F-B-I was investigating whether the bank robbers were connected to the bombing.

FBI agents have said there was NO connection between the six bank robbery gang suspects who were arrested and the bombing.
