3 Charged in Federal Courthouse Bombing

Authorities say three people have been charged with bombing a federal courthouse and a FedEx building in San Diego.

A federal grand jury returned the indictment Tuesday against 31-year-old Rachelle Carlock, 59-year-old Ella Louise Sanders and 43-year-old Eric Reginald Robinson - all from San Diego.

No one was injured in the April 25 FedEx bombing or the May 4 courthouse attack, but the courthouse lobby suffered serious property damage.

U.S. Attorney Karen Hewitt said Wednesday that all three were charged with use of a weapon of mass destruction and other offenses. They are in government custody.

Carlock was charged in May with use of false identification to obtain explosive materials, being a felon in possession of explosive materials and fraud.
