An Iraqi man charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande has been indicted on 14 state counts of attempted murder.
Authorities said Abdullatif Ali Aldosary researched bomb-making materials and gathered chemicals before detonating the explosive outside the office on Nov 30. No one was injured.
Aldosary, 48, initially faced five federal counts, including wea-pons and explosives charges, to which he pleaded not guilty.
A judge has dismissed two of those charges related to the bombing at the request of federal prosecutors, who indicated the state charges would cover the same conduct.
Aldosary still faces three federal weapons counts alleging he was a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.
Authorities have declined to provide details about the case, including any motive or whether Aldosary is suspected of working alone or with others.
