BRANDON, Miss. (AP) - 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 court.
The FBI arrested 41-year-old James Everett Dutschke at his house in Tupelo, Miss., on Saturday.
He's charged with making and possessing ricin for use as a weapon.
He's scheduled to appear Monday in U.S. District Court in Oxford, Miss.
Tests show the letters were tainted with ricin. They 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.
