JACKSON, MS (AP) - A man charged with sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday on a new charge.
A November 20 indictment accuses James Everett Dutschke of trying to recruit someone to make more ricin and send it to Sen. Wicker. Dutschke allegedly did this recruiting while in jail on charges he sent ricin-tainted letters to President Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker and a Mississippi judge, Sadie Holland.
It also says Dutschke, a 42-year-old Tupelo man, was again trying to frame Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis, the same man he's accused of trying to set up the first time.
Dutschke's lawyer didn't immediately respond to a message Monday.
The suspect is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Oxford on this new charge.
