SACRAMENTO — Unabomber suspect Theodore J. Kaczynski, a brilliant mathematician awaiting trial here in two fatal bombings, was indicted Tuesday in New Jersey in connection with a third deadly blast there in 1994.
A federal grand jury in Newark, N.J., issued a three-count indictment accusing Kaczynski, 54, of transporting a bomb from Montana, where he lived in a tiny shack, to San Francisco, where he allegedly mailed it to the northern New Jersey home of advertising executive Thomas J. Mosser.
Mosser, 50, was killed when he opened the explosive package in his kitchen.
"These charges are the result of a multi-agency investigation by the Unabom Task Force into a series of bombings that occurred across the United States beginning in 1978," said Atty. Gen. Janet Reno in a statement.
Reno said two of the latest bombing counts could carry the death penalty. But federal authorities indicated that no decision has been made on whether to pursue the death penalty against Kaczynski either in New Jersey or Sacramento.
