A federal grand jury has indicted a Mississippi man suspected of sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials, according to an indictment made public Monday.
The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn't immediately clear.
Authorities have dropped charges against a Mississippi man accused of sending letters laced with the poison ricin to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a judge, while FBI agents searched another man's house in connection with the case.
Federal authorities charged a Mississippi man on Thursday with threatening to harm President Obama and a U.S. senator, saying he is the person who tried to send letters laced with the poison ricin to the White House and Capitol Hill.
A Mississippi man was arrested Wednesday, accused of sending letters to President Barack Obama and a senator that tested positive for the poisonous ricin and set the nation's capital on edge a day after the Boston Marathon bombings.
The FBI said late Wednesday that it had arrested a Mississippi man accused of sending letters tested positive for the poison ricin to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a Mississippi justice official.
Curtis said after his arrest that he believed he was framed.
Curtis said he and Dutschke know each other and had feuded.
