Another charge in case of ricin-laced letters

Another charge has been added against a Mississippi man accused of mailing ricin-laced letters to public officials. 
 
A federal grand jury charged James Everett Dutschke with threatening the President of the United States by mail. The penalty for that charge is a maximum of five years in prison.  
 
Dutschke was already facing a charge of attempting to use a biological weapon, which if convicted, could carry a life sentence behind bars.

Police originally arrested Elvis Impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis in April in connection with the ricin letters, but charges against him were dropped six days later.
 
Evidence from Curtis and his family helped lead investigators to Dutschke. The two men have reportedly been feuding for years.
