A Park Hills man is headed to federal prison for setting off explosives.
33-year-old Daniel Walker was sentenced to 46 months in prison in a U.S. district court on December 19th, and he also received a concurrent 5-year sentence in St. Francois County court on December 27th.
Walker was charged with felony counts of receiving explosives with the intent to damage property; manufacturing a destructive device; and first-degree attempted arson.
Walker was charged after a June 2018 incident where he set a pipe bomb inside his ex-girlfriend’s truck on Clay Street, causing the truck to catch on fire.
Walker also cut the woman’s swimming pool with sharp object and removed a security camera.
Authorities were able to obtain audio of Walker threatening the woman.
Walker had already been charged in a prior case for trying to burn down a girlfriend’s property at Green Acres Residential Care Facility in Farmington.
