Pinal County bombing suspect charged with murder

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Federal agents and Arizona officials charged an Iraqi man, Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, with detonating an explosive device outside a Social Security building in Pinal County, back in November. 

On Monday, agents tacked on murder charges after accusing Aldosary of also fatally shooting 26-year-old Orlando Requena three days before that bombing.

The officials, joined by Requena's family, discussed the new developments at a press conference in Phoenix.

Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said "One of those criminal investigations deals with multiple counts of attempted murder on July 10th. We presented the case to the grand jury against Abdullatif Aldosary and the grand jury returned a true bill the council included among other things fourteen counts of attempted first degree murder. I want to stress the fact that Mr. Aldosary is presumed innocent until proven guilty, but today is the beginning of the attempt to seek justice for the victims."

Requena and Aldosary had worked at the same grain processing plant in Maricopa County. Aldosary had also pleaded guilty to felony aggravated harassment charges in 2008, and he served a year in prison.
