DOVER, Del. (AP) — Federal authorities say a former Delaware political candidate who ran for governor and U.S. Senate mailed death threats to a lawyer representing his wife in a divorce case.
Court records unsealed Monday indicate that Michael Protack mailed a death threat to Patrick Boyer in January and later sent a letter containing a graphic image of a mutilated body.
Protack was indicted last week on two counts of mailing threatening communications.
Protack sought the GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2004 and 2008 and narrowly lost a 2006 U.S. Senate primary.
He did not immediately respond to email and phone messages Monday.
