Abdullatif Ali Aldosary is charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande and has been indicted on 14 counts of attempted murder.
CASA GRANDE, AZ (CBS5/AP) -
An Iraqi man from Coolidge accused in a fatal 2012 shooting and a bombing outside a Social Security Administration office is scheduled to be arraigned in March.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that Abdullatif Ali Aldosary is scheduled to enter pleas on March 7 in Pinal County Superior Court. The arraignment was postponed until after he is sentenced Feb. 24 on federal court in Phoenix in a weapons case.
A federal jury convicted him in September of charges of being a felon in possession of guns and ammunition.
Authorities said Aldosary researched bomb-making materials and gathered chemicals before detonating the explosive outside the office in Casa Grande on Nov 30. No one was injured in the blast about 50 miles south of Phoenix.
Aldosary was charged in July in Pinal County with murder and other offenses in the Nov. 27, 2012 shooting death of Orlando Requena who worked at a grain business in the community of Maricopa.
He also will be arraigned on charges stemming from a bombing outside a Social Security Administration office in Casa Grande.
