A man accused of sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday on a new charge.
A new indictment on Nov. 20 says Dutschke, while incarcerated, tried to recruit someone to make more ricin and send it to Wicker.
The indictment says the 42-year-old Tupelo man was again trying to frame Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis. He's the same man he's accused of trying to set up the first time in the case.
Dutschke's lawyer didn't immediately respond to a message Monday.
Dutschke is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Oxford.
