Court Appearance For Suspect in Ricin Letters Case


A martial arts instructor appeared in federal court on Monday (April 29), suspected of sending poisoned letters to officials including President Barack Obama. James Everett Dutschke was arrested last week after ricin-tainted letters were mailed to Obama and two other officials. The letters were intercepted before reaching their destinations. Another Mississippi man was initially held, but the charges against him were dropped after officials failed to find evidence of his involvement.
