Georgia Men Charged With Setting Off Explosion to Kill Woman and Child Inside Home

Two men have been arrested for an early morning explosion last month that police say was intended to kill a woman and child who lived there.

Investigators say Steven Glosser and Caleb Kinsey planted a bomb in the driveway of a home in the coastal Georgia town of Richmond Hill on January 13. The blast rocked the neighborhood, tore the facade off the house, and did significant damage to the interior, but no one was hurt, WTOC reported.

A woman and her child had just moved into the home the day before the blast, police said.

Bryan County Sheriff Mark Crowe, who called the bomb plot “sinister,” said one of the two men had a prior relationship with the woman.

Both men face a slew of federal and state charges. Glosser has been charged with possession/transport/receiving explosive destructive device with intent to kill and criminal damage to property, Crowe said. He’s been booked in the Liberty County Jail.

Kinsey fled the state but turned himself in to police in Louisiana, where he was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police did not identify the intended victim of the explosion, or say where she and her child were at the time of the blast.
