SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a Washington man accused of placing a bomb along the planned route of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane.

The grand jury indictment returned Tuesday charges 36-year-old Kevin Harpham (har'-pum) with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and unauthorized possession of an unregistered explosive device. Harpham is scheduled to appear Wednesday before a federal magistrate.

Harpham is from Addy, a town north of Spokane, and has extensive ties to white supremacist groups.

He is represented by federal public defender Roger Peven, who tells The Spokesman-Review it's a serious case that he's looking forward to working on.

The pipe bomb was found the morning of the parade, Jan. 17, and disabled before it could explode. Harpham was arrested at his home on March 9.
