OXFORD, Miss. – Charges have been dropped against a Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and others.
Paul Kevin Curtis and his attorneys spoke to the media at a news conference after the charges were dropped.

The order of dismissal said that the ongoing investigation had revealed new information.
An FBI agent testified in court that no ricin was found at Curtis home.
