FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Two suspects in a pair of Fayetteville pipe bomb cases were ordered to be held without bond on federal charges that included arson and use of an explosive device.

Dimitrius Stewart and Russell Powell were in court at a probable cause hearing on Thursday. If convicted, they face a sentence of five years to life in prison.

Prosecutors say the men are responsible for a pipe bomb explosion at Fayetteville Technical Community College and a pipe bomb that was found at the American Flag storage facility.
