    ST. PAUL, Minn. – A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to threatening to kill President Barack Obama and his family.

    The U.S. Attorney’s office says 35-year-old Chane Phillip Christenson of St. Paul pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of making a threat to take the life of the president.

    Christenson was indicted in April. That indictment initially was filed under seal.

    In his plea agreement, Christenson admitted that on Jan. 6 he sent an e-mail to the White House website stating that he intended to kill the president, first lady Michelle Obama and their two children. Christenson also admitted that he previously sent a similar e-mail to the White House.

    Christenson faces up to five years in prison when sentenced.
