  • Authorities allege a man arrested more than a year ago for sending threatening letters to a federal judge mailed similar letters to district court officials in North Dakota and Minnesota after he was indicted.
    Carlos Kidd was originally charged in November 2012 with two counts of mailing threatening communications. Authorities allege he mailed two separate letters threatening to kill U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland in Bismarck.
    An updated indictment filed in federal court Wednesday includes six new charges on accusations he sent letters threatening to kill five district court clerks and one state judge.
    U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson ruled after a competency hearing Monday that Kidd is fit to stand trial.
    Kidd is currently serving two prison sentences, including 10 years for escape and five years for harassment.
