Inmate Threatens FDL County DA

An inmate at Waupun Correctional is accused of threatening the life of Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney. Twenty-nine-year-old James Luke is facing a felony charge for the alleged threat. According to the criminal complaint, he sent a letter to Toney in March of last year that said there was a “target on his head that said death.” Luke said that he would eventually have his time overturned and beat pending charges and when he is released he would personally decapitate Toney.  Luke has a long history as a habitual offender. A preliminary hearing is scheduled in Dodge County Court on June 22nd.
