KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Attorneys for a man suspected of making online threats to schools and religious leaders have asked a judge to reschedule next week’s jury trial as both sides work toward a plea agreement.

The Flathead Beacon reports (https://bit.ly/1MCErdF ) that David Lenio’s attorney filed a motion Nov. 5 saying both sides are working toward a “potential resolution.”

Lenio was arrested Feb. 16 after a Twitter rant threatening school children and Jewish people caught the attention of Jonathan Hutson, a spokesman in Washington D.C. for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Shortly after the tirade, Lenio is accused of moving guns to his house.

Kalispell Police Chief Roger Nasset says Lenio posed a “very real threat” because he had moved the weapons to his home.
