NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Tennessee man currently behind bars in Maury County is now facing six counts of commission of an act of terrorism.

Earl Dillehay is accused of sending letters threatening to kill officials in both Tennessee and North Carolina.

The letters allegedly targeted several government officials, including judges, district attorneys and a Supreme Court justice.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said they learned Dillehay was upset he was not being moved to North Carolina, where he has a previous criminal record.

He remains behind bars in Maury County on unrelated charges.
