We have an update in the case of the woman injured by a bomb disguised as a box of chocolates earlier this month. The victim's brother, Clair Wolf, who authorities are calling a person of interest in the bombing, has been arraigned on nine felony charges, but none are related to the bomb attack.

The charges are all for environmental violations at his home including illegal dumping and water pollution. He was already in custody for violating his probation stemming from a 2006 animal cruelty charge in San Augustine County.

Investigators believe Clair Wolf may have hired someone to make the bomb a part of an inheritance scheme, but he has not been charged in the bomb case.

His sister, Vennie Wolf, was injured when she opened the gift-wrapped package disguised as a box of chocolates on July 9 and it exploded, shooting nails and tacks into her face and hands.

The ATF says they have sent all the evidence from the bomb to their lab and are still waiting for the test results that could include fingerprints or DNA.
