Jury selection underway in pipe bomb attempted murder trial

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - Jury selection got under way Monday for the trial of an East County man accused of booby-trapping his wife's pickup truck with a pipe bomb in an attempt to kill her.

Larry Hoagland, 50, faces life in prison if convicted of attempted murder and other counts in the Sept. 23, 2010, alleged attack on his wife, Connie.

The victim suffered burns, broken bones and other injuries when a pipe bomb planted under the dashboard of her pickup went off as she got in to leave work at a daycare facility in Rancho San Diego.

According to evidence presented at a preliminary hearing last October, Hoagland -- a photographer -- had plans to leave his family and move to Pennsylvania to be with his high school sweetheart, with whom he had renewed a romantic relationship.

Prosecutors allege the defendant checked out websites on how to make a bomb prior to the attack.

Hoagland, who was arrested five days after the attack, is being held without bail in the George Bailey Detention Facility, according to jail records.
