Cesar Altieri Sayoc, the South Florida man accused of sending pipe bombs to critics of President Donald Trump, is headed to New York to stand trial.

Sayoc’s case was transferred Friday from federal court in Miami to the Southern District of New York. Reports indicate the FBI’s New York office has been leading the investigation, and several of the bombs allegedly linked to Sayoc fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan.
