(AP) A Pennsylvania grand jury has charged a Clarks Summit man with threatening to kill President Barack Obama.


Prosecutors say in a Thursday news release that 42-year-old Nicholas Savino allegedly sent a threatening email to the White House on Aug. 16.


The email allegedly said that Obama is the Antichrist and that he must stand down or be shot dead. The charges stem from an investigation by the U.S. Secret Service and the Clarks Summit police.


Clarks Summit is about 10 miles outside Scranton. Obama visited Scranton and the region Aug. 23, a week after the alleged threatening email. That same day, local police seized ammunition and weapons at a Clarks Summit home on behalf of the Secret Service.


Savino couldn't be reached for comment.
