TRI-CITIES, Wash. (AP) - A Washington state man accused of threatening a federal official who works in Yakima has waived his right to a speedy trial.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2kyXwdt ) that William Quigley’s trial is set for May. It had previously been scheduled for this month.

Quigley, of Richland, has been charged with threatening to shoot a federal official with a Russian assault rifle and cut off his head. He previously pleaded not guilty.

The victim was identified in court as a supervisor in the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services who lives and works in Yakima.

A judge previously denied Quigley bail following his December arrest, saying the government has established that Quigley is a credible threat to the victim.
