Man accused of threatening Murray is released

YAKIMA, Wash. — A man accused of threatening to kill Washington Sen. Patty Murray over her support of health care reform has been released from jail after posting a $20,000 bond.

The Yakima County Jail confirmed that Charles Alan Wilson was released Friday.

Wilson had been held at the jail since FBI agents arrested him without incident Tuesday at his Selah, Wash. home.

Wilson, 63, has been charged with one count of threatening a federal official. Prosecutors allege he left several voicemail messages laden with expletives, some of which included threats to Murray, between March 22 and April 4.
