SEATTLE (AP) - A man accused of threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray pleaded not guilty Thursday in federal court in Seattle. Trial for Charles Alan Wilson was set for July 6.
The 64-year-old from Selah was arrested in April and charged with threatening a federal official.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle said Wilson left voicemail messages laden with expletives and threats to kill Washington's senior Democratic senator over her support for health care legislation.
Wilson remains free on bond. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
