Man accused of threat against Bush remains in jail

OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - A 20-year-old Mississippi man

indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly threatening to kill

President Bush will remain in jail until he goes to trial in

January.

Neal Allan Thomas of Olive Branch was arrested by the Secret

Service after being accused of using another person's MySpace

account without permission and posting messages threatening to blow

up a fire station and assassinate the president, according to an

affidavit.

A federal judge in Oxford denied a request from Thomas last week

to be released from jail pending trial. Thomas has been held in the

Lafayette County Detention Center since his arrest in September. He

has pleaded innocent to the charges.

Thomas is set to go to trial on Jan. 12.
