SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An Illinois man charged in an explosion at the city's main library made his initial court appearance in Utah today.
Thomas Zajac (Zay-Jack) appeared before Magistrate Judge Paul Warner at Salt Lake City's federal courthouse on charges of possessing an unregistered destructive device.
Warner set a hearing for Monday to review whether Zajac should remain in jail pending further proceedings.
U-S Attorney's office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch says the case is scheduled to be presented to a grand jury on Tuesday for possible additional charges.
No one was injured in the September 15th explosion that forced the evacuation of 400 people and destroyed a window.
According to court documents, Zajac's fingerprint was found on remnants of a rocket igniter found at the scene. He was arrested last month at his home in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois.
