LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Federal prosecutors say a Kentucky woman has been indicted on charges of threatening former President George W. Bush and U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

Authorities said Thursday that 49-year-old Susan Mary Collins of Lexington, Ky., was indicted on a count of making a threat against a former president and a count of mailing a threatening communication.

The indictment says Collins mailed on Sept. 2 letters to Bush and McConnell that threatened to injure them.

There was no answer Thursday night at a Lexington phone listing for Susan Collins.
