Ex-candidate charged with making threats in US

An Indiana woman who ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Congress last year was being held Saturday on charges she made threats against judges and other officials on her Facebook account.
The former candidate, 51-year-old Cheryl Allen, was being held on $100,000 bond Saturday.
State police arrested her on eight felony counts of intimidation on Thursday, the same day authorities discovered the postings, which were apparently published on her page three days earlier.
