MARICOPA, Ariz. -- An Iraqi man charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande faces additional charges related to the murder of a worker at a grain company in Maricopa last year.

Abdullatif Ali Aldosary was indicted on 18 counts stemming from the Nov. 30 bombing. No one was injured in the blast.

He was indicted on 14 counts of attempted murder, one count of arson of an occupied structure, one count of depositing explosives and two counts of criminal damage related to the bombing.

He now faces charges for his alleged involvement in a murder committed three days prior to the explosion, Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles announced Monday morning.

Orlando Requena, 26, of Casa Grande, was found shot to death at Arizona Grain, 38501 W. Cowtown Road, at approximately 2:45 a.m. on Nov. 27. He  was found in the off-load area along with several shell casings from what appeared to be a handgun.

The Grand Jury of Pinal County indicted Aldosary on four counts in connection to Requena's murder, including first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of misconduct involving weapons.
