Woman Accused Of Ricin Letters Due In Court

TEXARKANA - The East Texas woman accused of mailing poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and others is due in federal court.

A detention hearing for Shannon Guess Richardson is scheduled for Wednesday morning in Texarkana, Texas.

Authorities say Richardson tried to set up her husband for sending letters laced with ricin to Obama, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and to a leader of the mayor's gun-control group.

She was charged with two counts of mailing a threatening communication and one count of making a threat against the president.

Richardson is an actress from New Boston, Texas, near Texarkana. She remains in custody after giving birth in July.
