Charges Dropped Against Aliso Viejo Bomb Suspect


Federal prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against the ex boyfriend of the woman who was killed in an explosion in Aliso Viejo earlier this month at the Magyar Kozmetika spa. The victim, Ildiko Krajnyak, 48, was Beal's former girlfriend and business partner. Krajnyak was killed when a package bomb she opened exploded in her face. 

Stephen Beal, 59, of Long Beach was arrested after authorities searched his home after the bombing and found two “complete” improvised explosive devices, two cardboard tubes, batteries, a 9-volt battery connector, 130 pounds of explosives and precursors, two handguns and a shotgun." Beal faced one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device, he had not been charged in connection with the explosion that killed Krajnyak. The materials found in Beal's house did not meet the criteria for a "destructive device".
