ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - A northeastern Kentucky man has been charged
with attempted murder stemming from a car bombing that allegedly
targeted his wife in an Ashland parking garage.
Police arrested 51-year-old Thomas K. Biederman of Russell at
the federal courthouse in Ashland. Biederman is also charged with
using a weapon of mass destruction.
The warrant charges Thomas Biederman with intentionally trying
to kill Janie Biederman by placing a pipe bomb in her Ford Mustang
on July 28. The bomb detonated in a parking garage after Janie
Biederman touched the vehicle's brake pedal.
Officers say Janie Biederman suffered first- and second-degree
burns to her arms and on the backs of her legs.
As he left the courthouse, Thomas Biederman denied having
anything to do with the bombing,
