FBI agents arrested actress Shannon Richardson of New Boston, Texas, and accused her of sending the ricin-laced letters to Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
She’s charged with mailing threatening communications.
Richardson threatened to kill Obama and Bloomberg if they took her guns away, and phrased the letter as if her husband wrote it.
Richardson had called local police to report her husband had suspicious items in their New Boston home, but investigators say it was Richardson herself, who sent the letters laced with the poisonous substance.
Richardson’s husband said his wife wanted a divorce and that she set him up.
She admitted to placing castor beans, where ricin comes from, near her husband’s golf cart.
