After being arrest Friday, Shannon Richardson is in custody at the Titus County Jail in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.

Richardson was arrested on a charge of mailing threatening letters to President Obama. She is also suspect of mailing ricin laced letters to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Richardson first told the FBI she suspected her husband of being behind the letters, but a week later she was arrested instead.

Nathaniel Richardson, Shannon's husband, filed for divorce in Texarkana, Texas on Thursday, just one day before she was arrested.
