WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg man who was charged with two counts of attempted murder after a lawyer was severely hurt by an explosion and for a second bomb now faces new charges over a third bomb.

Lawyer Maria Mitousis lost a hand and suffered other serious injuries in the July 3 blast.

In the following days police discovered other explosive devices at two other law firms.
