Talladega College student charged in threat case


TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a Talladega College student is charged with making threats against other students at the school.

Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens says 23-year-old Douglas Fredrick Powell of Clay County made statements to at least two administrators about a group of students.

The Daily Home (http://bit.ly/TMI0XP ) quotes the prosecutor as saying Powell talked about killing the others either as a group or one at a time.

He was arrested Wednesday on a charge of making terrorist threats and jailed with bond set at $40,000.

Court records don't yet show if Powell has a defense lawyer.

Giddens says the college was proactive in reacting to the situation, especially after the Connecticut school shooting.
