Calif. man charged in San Diego courthouse bombing
SAN DIEGO — A fourth person has been charged in a pipebomb attack on the federal courthouse in San Diego two years ago.
Donny Love Sr. was charged Thursday with use of a weapon of mass destruction in federal court.
Three other defendants — Rachelle Carlock, Eric Robinson and Ella Sanders — have pleaded guilty to their roles in the bombing.
The indictment alleges that Carlock and Robinson drove from Love’s home in Menifee to San Diego with a backpack containing three pipe boms, which Carlock detonated by the courthouse front entrance.
The May 2008 explosion caused significant damage, but no deaths or injuries.
Prosecutors say Love is in state custody and will be transferred to federal custody in the coming weeks so he can appear in federal court in San Diego for arraignment.
