Hearing for Miss. man in suspicious letters case
BRANDON, Miss. - The Mississippi man charged with making and possessing ricin as part of the investigation into poison-laced letters sent to President Barack Obama and others is expected in a federal court today in Oxford, Miss.
The FBI arrested 41-year-old James Everett Dutschke (DUHS'-kee) at his house in Tupelo, Miss., on Saturday.
He's charged with making and possessing ricin for use as a weapon.
The letters tainted with ricin were sent April 8 to Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and an 80-year-old Mississippi judge.
Dutschke faces up to life in prison if convicted.
