TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man has been sentenced to 10 years in state prison after being found guilty of a chemical bomb attack.

Todd Russell Fries was sentenced Monday on two counts of attempted murder and 22 other state charges, including arson and kidnapping. He is already serving time in federal prison for convictions in the same case.

The former Burns Power Washing owner placed burning chemicals and an explosive devise outside a customer’s home in 2009. Prosecutors say the fire caused a mile-wide chlorine plume to spread across the neighborhood.

Prosecutors say Fries also spray-painted racial slurs on the couples’ home and placed a dead coyote on their driveway.

Prosecutors say police found revenge manuals in Fries’ home.

His term in state prison will begin after he completes his federal sentence.
