RED OAK, Iowa (AP) - A man and a woman have been accused of threatening to kill three Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies in southwest Iowa.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1pyi39z ) 25-year-old Mike Andrew Lawson, of Red Oak, and 24-year-old Justine Sheree Powers, of College Springs, were arrested Thursday on three counts each of threat of terrorism. Their attorneys did not respond immediately to messages left Friday.

Authorities say Lawson and Powers threatened the deputies on Aug. 29, though additional information has not been released. A criminal complaint says the pair also told one deputy they would blow up his house and hurt his family.

Lawson and Powers remain at the Montgomery County Jail on a $10,000 bond. A preliminary hearing for both is set for Sept. 15.
