Associated Press

DENVER (AP) — Police say a man who put three failed explosive devices inside a worship hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in suburban Denver before killing his wife and himself there on Christmas morning is suspected of causing an explosion at a union building. Shortly before Sunday’s murder-suicide, police say Enoch Apodaca entered the union building with a bucket and there was a “large explosion” shortly after he left. The building was closed and no one was hurt. Three explosive devices that police say he left at the worship hall didn’t detonate. Police say one of the devices appeared to start a fire but one of two church members inside at the time doused the flames.
