RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have filed several domestic abuse charges against a 41-year-old Wisconsin man who served time for a string of bombings in Utah in the 1990s.

Prosecutors on say Sean Riker snapped over the weekend and attacked his wife and children. He's now charged with 11 counts, including causing physical and mental harm to a child.

He remained in the Racine County jail with his bond set at $1 million on Thursday. He was unavailble for comment, and the court clerk's office says he doesn't have an attorney.

Riker was arrested without incident Tuesday afternoon after his wife and children reported the alleged abuse to sheriff's deputies.

Riker was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for a 1995 bombing spree in St. George, Utah, but got out early in October 2008. Riker's family apparently moved to southeastern Wisconsin about a week ago.
