FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An Oklahoma man has pleaded guilty to lying about a bomb threat at a church in Arkansas.

Fifty-one-year-old Allen Ward pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of maliciously conveying false information.

The plea agreement says Ward used a cellphone in October 2012 to tell a dispatcher at the Bentonville Police Department that there might be a bomb located at the Fellowship Bible Church in Rogers, Arkansas. Ward’s ex-wife attended the church.

Ward faces a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment. His sentencing will occur at a later date.
