Missouri man pleads guilty to threatening FBI agent
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- A southwest Missouri man faces up to 10 years in federal prison for leaving a string of threatening messages at FBI offices in Springfield and Kansas City.
Records show that Melvin Henre of Marshfield pleaded guilty last week to felony threat charges stemming from calls made between Jan. 16 and March 19. A federal indictment accuses Henre of threatening to assault and kill supervising agent Dean Bryant at the FBI's Springfield office.
He was also accused of repeatedly calling the FBI in Kansas City to make similar threats against Bryant.
The calls appear to have stemmed from the FBI's refusal to investigate Henre's report that a Marshfield minister had kidnapped his fiancee and was holding her out of state.
In March Henre pleaded guilty to domestic assault and harassment in Webster County.
