Ex-Wife: Husband Innocent of Ricin-Laced Letters

TUPELO, Miss. -

(AP) - The ex-wife of a man accused of mailing a poison-laced letter to the president says she and all of his family and friends are sure he is innocent. Laura Curtis of Booneville says she gave the FBI the names of people she thinks might have tried to frame him.

Curtis contacted The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal http://bit.ly/11tMnZ9 on Saturday to speak out for 45-year-old Paul Kevin Curtis, who is accused of sending letters containing powdered ricin to President Barack Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker of Tupelo.

A hearing for Curtis will continue Monday. He was arrested Wednesday on federal charges of intentionally mailing threats to the officials.

She said the FBI has been easy to work with and she believes investigators will find whoever sent the letters.
