Salem Pipe Bomb Suspect Back in Court TuesdayKevin Hays Salem-News.com
None of the bombs exploded, but they could have caused serious injury or death if they had, Salem police said.
(SALEM) - The man who allegedly planted pipe bombs on four sport utility vehicles in the Salem-area that sent the community into panic back in August, is scheduled to appear in a Marion County Courtroom Tuesday morning.
44-year-old Lonnie Troy Glinski was arrested on Oct. 16th at his home in Sweet Home.
He is charged with seven counts of attempted aggravated murder and four counts of possession of a destructive device.
The four bombs were attached to the undercarriages of the SUVs. None exploded, but they could have caused serious injury or death if they had, Salem police said.
The bombs targeted Glinski's ex-wife, Stephanie Glinski, of Salem; Denise C. Foster of Salem and her son; and Mitchell Adams of Salem.
According to court documents Glinski wanted to kill his ex-wife so he could get full custody of their children and would no longer have to pay child support.
Glinski’s girlfriend, 50-year-old Laurie Lee Girtman, also of Sweet Home, was charged with hindering prosecution involving the disposing of evidence in the case.
The pre-trial hearing is set to begin at 8:30 AM.
