Iowa Inmate Indicted for Threats Against President

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa prison inmate has been indicted for making threats against the president.

Documents unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Southern Iowa says 23-year-old Tommy Krueger threatened in a December letter to a U.S. marshal in Montgomery, Ala., that he was going to kill Barack Obama and then the Iowa governor after his release.

The complaint says Krueger reiterated the threats in a subsequent
interview with a Secret Service investigator.

The indictment was first reported by KCRG-TV.

Iowa prison records show Krueger has been in the Iowa Medical & Classification Center in Coralville since 2009. He is serving a
five-year sentence for third-degree burglary but is expected to be
released in March.

Court records don't list Krueger's attorney.
