COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A man serving time in state prison now faces additional charges of stalking a Lowcountry woman.

A news release from the State Law Enforcement Division says that 36-year-old Joseph Singleton Jr., has been charged with sending about 20 letters to a Jasper County woman threatening to kill her.

Warrants say the letters were sent from the Manning Correctional Institution in Columbia.

Prison records show that Singleton, who has a prior harassment conviction involving the same woman, is serving time on harassment and burglary convictions.

If convicted of stalking, he could be sentenced to as many as 15 years in prison.
