Police Say Yakima Man Built Bomb, Intended to Kill Man

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Police are seeking attempted murder charges against a Yakima man they say built a bomb to kill his ex-girlfriend's partner.

           

The 36-year-old man was already facing related federal charges when he was arrested Tuesday afternoon. His bail was set a $500,000 during a Wednesday court hearing.

           

County deputy prosecutor Ken Ramm says police also arrested the man's 21-year-old brother-in-law. Yakima detectives believe the men conspired to design a car bomb.

           

Authorities say the daughter of the intended victim found a suspicious device at the end of their driveway in July. Police say the device was a bomb powerful enough to kill.

           

Yakima detectives worked with the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Army bomb technicians on the case.
