Judge denies bail for suspected 1970s radical

MINNEAPOLIS -- A judge denied bail Friday for Kathleen Ann Soliah, the long-sought member of the radical Symbionese Liberation Army accused of planting pipe bombs under police cars.

Ramsey County District Judge Kathleen Gearin said she denied bail because one of the charges against Soliah carries a penalty of life in prison.Soliah, who authorities say started a new life in St. Paul as Sara Jane Olson, has refused to waive extradition to face the California bomb charges that date back to 1975. Her next hearing was scheduled for July 15.
