SLED: Prisoner threatened to kill Florence judge
FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a woman nearly at the end of her prison sentence for making bomb threats has been arrested after threatening to kill a judge, his family and public defenders in Florence County.
State Law Enforcement Division agents said they arrested 35-year-old Veda Blevins on Wednesday at a state women's prison in Columbia.
Agents say she confessed to sending three letters in April to the judge, threatening to kill him and his family. She also sent a letter in January threatening to blow up the public defender's office in Florence and kill all the lawyers inside.
Blevins was serving a 40-month sentence for making bomb threats. Corrections Department records show she was set to be released on May 27.
It wasn't known if she had a lawyer.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
