LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A man accused of stopping an Amtrak train in south-central Nebraska is working on a plea deal.

Federal court records say a plea change hearing has been scheduled July 12 for 26-year-old Taylor Wilson, of St. Charles, Missouri. He's pleaded not guilty to attempting to disable a train and attempting to interfere with an engineer or conductor. The charges stem from an Oct. 22 incident as the train headed to Chicago. Authorities say Wilson entered a secure area of a locomotive and enabled an emergency brake. The train stopped in Oxford, Nebraska, about 200 miles (322 kilometers) southwest of Omaha.

His attorney, Jerry Sena, declined Thursday to provide any specifics. He did say, however, that any deal likely would include resolution of a weapons case pending in Missouri.
