ST. LOUIS (AP) -- An eastern Missouri man faces sentencing in November after being convicted of threatening to kill, injure and intimidate several people, including a St. Louis police lieutenant and the lieutenant's family.
Federal prosecutors said Wednesday that 50-year-old William Mabie of Festus was convicted of three felony counts of mailing threatening communications and one count of interstate communication of threats.
The U.S. Attorney's office says Mabie made threatening e-mails, letters and phone calls to people and police officers. In some cases, he called police and said he planned to engage in gunfights with officers. In letters, he said he would kill or injure people and it "would take hours to clean up the blood."
