"ChenaBomber" indictment announced

 

A local grand jury has formally indicted the 54–year old Chiropractor connected to that big explosion that rocked Fairbanks earlier this month in the Chena Pump–Chena Ridge area.
 
Guy Christopher Mannino is charged with a Felony count of Third Degree Criminal Mischief.
 
Around 4–15 PM February 4th, State Troopers began receiving phone calls reporting an explosion near Heather Drive.
 
Troopers say that while they were familiar with exploding ordinance and gun fire from that area, Mannino (who is a licensed Federal Explosives dealer) was also urged to increase safety there as well.
 
They say projectiles routinely leave a "pit" area at Craig O'Donoghue's residence, which is where the incident occurred.
 
Troopers say up to 18–houses were affected or damaged in the blast, and Mannino is said to have used as much as THREE HUNDRED POUNDS of explosives.
