Georgia woman accused of death threat against congressman

Authorities say a northeast Georgia woman is in federal custody after
prosecutors say she threatened to kill U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, a Georgia
Republican.

An indictment filed this week in U.S. District Court
in Georgia states that Pam Spivey of Lavonia threatened to kill Collins
as well as an immediate family member of the congressman.

The indictment doesn't identify the family member, nor does it reveal a possible motive.

Spivey
is charged with influencing a federal official by threat; and
influencing a federal official by threatening an immediate family
member.
