MOUNT PLEASANT, Pa. (AP) - A youth football player’s father and a waitress who worked with him have been ordered to trial on charges that they threatened Pennsylvania youth football leagues officials, prompting cancellation of its season.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ( ) reports that 51-year-old Joseph Loughner and 34-year-old Kimberly Ross waived their rights to a preliminary hearing on terroristic threats, conspiracy and harassment charges.

Investigators said Ross told police that Loughner made her write threatening letters to Mount Pleasant Area Junior Football League officials because he was unhappy with rule changes. Police say they also found 40 bullet shell casings near the field used by the league with the names of officials written on them.

Loughner told reporters Friday that “I didn’t throw no bullets” but acknowledged having written a letter. Ross said nothing.
