Ricin suspect home

A Mississippi man who is accused of sending ricin-laced letters to Pres. Obama, a senator and a judge made an appearance in federal court.

James Dutschke was arrested Saturday for making and possessing ricin.

He is being held without bond until a preliminary hearing this Thursday.

Dutschke is the second person arrested for the poisonous letters.

The charges were dropped against the first person originally arrested for the crime.

That man’s lawyer told investigators Dutschke may have framed her client, saying the two were rivals.
