DETROIT — An Upper Peninsula man charged with leaving a bomb outside a Detroit federal building in 2011 will remain in custody indefinitely for psychiatric care.

A federal judge granted the government's request this week. Gary Mikulich is being held at a prison in North Carolina that offers mental health care.

In 2014, the 47-year-old Mikulich was found mentally incompetent to face charges, despite forced medication. But that doesn't mean he gets to go home to Kingsford. The government says he's a risk to the public.

A tool bag holding an explosive was left outside the McNamara Building in Detroit in 2011. It was brought inside by a guard but stashed under a desk. Three weeks passed before the bag was X-rayed and destroyed at an island in the Detroit River.
