Ex-Boyfriend Of Woman Killed In Aliso Viejo Explosion Arrested

The 59-year-old Beal was handcuffed and only spoke to answer questions from the judge.

Beal is being held without bail even without a connection to the bombing.

His attorney declined to comment after the court hearing. Federal agents found the two IEDs in Beal's Long Beach home.

Beal's Facebook page has many photos of him traveling with Krajnyak, a licensed cosmetologist who owned the day spa where the blast occurred.

A voicemail recording at her business said the spa was closed through Monday and would reopen Tuesday, the day of the blast.

Authorities said Krajnyak's former boyfriend called police about two hours after the explosion when his current girlfriend told him about the explosion.

Investigators searched the business on Wednesday, along with Beal's home and the home Krajnyak shared with her mother and estranged husband in Trabuco Canyon.

Beal is awaiting a court appearance after being charged with possessing a destructive device.

One woman was killed and three other people were injured in Tuesday afternoon's explosion in Aliso Viejo.

One of his neighbors, "Mushroom" Montoya, told reporters he was shocked at Beal's arrest.

The officials said the explosion did not appear to be part of a broader plot and there was no immediate connection to any extremist groups.

Photos on Beal's Facebook page showed him vacationing with Krajnyak in Cuba, sitting together on the beach and riding jet skis in Mexico and shopping in Portugal.

Stephen Beal told authorities he hadn't been involved with rockets since 2004.

"I think he was happy to have found someone he could connect with", said Young, who never met Krajnyak.

Only five fragments remain: Gary Cahill , Phil Jones , Jordan Henderson , Raheem Sterling and Danny Welbeck . Come the next World Cup or even the next European Championships, I think England will be very competitive.

Beal's son, Nathan, says his father and Krajnyak had recently broken up.

"We do not believe this was an accident", said Paul Delacourt, the assistant director in charge of the FBI's field office in Los Angeles.

A woman who was on her way to an appointment in the area told CBS2 she arrived just after the blast occurred, and she saw fire on the roof of the building. He said she had just been there, following his visit to the states last month to help with her business that offered services such as facials, waxing and wrinkle treatments.

Both women, who were not named, were seriously injured and had to undergo surgery.

One neighbor claims Beal is a rocket enthusiast.

Stephen Beal was arrested late Wednesday after investigators found two improvised explosive devices in his Long Beach home, investigators said. He believes federal agents may have found "motor cases made out of aluminum".

"I'd come home from home sometimes and there would be rockets, but big, like something you'd see in a movie", Davis said.

He said those items were being shipped to the FBI's crime lab for analysis.

Children and staff at nearby Academy on the Hills preschool initially sheltered in place while the investigation continued, but children were later evacuated to a Target store parking lot so they could be reunited with their parents.

Ildiko Krajnyak, 40, a beautician who owns a day spa called Magyar Kozmetika inside the building at 11 Mareblu, was identifed as the victim in Tuesday afternoon's explosion.

Eimiller says no additional details will be provided until a federal criminal complaint is released.

Officials are investigating an explosion that killed a woman and injured three other people at a Southern California medical office building.

Bomb technicians and investigators from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives remained at the scene Wednesday, said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun. Preliminary indications are that the device was inside a package delivered to the business, two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News. Two customers were also injured.
