SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - An inmate at a state prison in central Pennsylvania has been charged by a federal grand jury with sending a letter threatening to kill a county judge.

Federal prosecutors allege that 27-year-old Joshua Keziah, an inmate at the State Correctional Institution of Frackville, mailed a letter in October to the Lancaster County Courthouse threatening to kill the president judge.

The U.S. attorney’s office said the maximum penalty for the offense is five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Keziah’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
