The Coulomb explosion mechanism of a CH2I2 molecule is rather different to that of CH3I. The kinetic energy of iodine ions is [similar]3 times larger due to Coulomb repulsion of the two iodine ions, while that of carbon ions is almost the same for both, as indicated by the red arrows that represent kinetic energies of the atomic ions.
