ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a northeast Georgia woman is in federal custody after prosecutors say she threatened to kill U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, a Georgia Republican.

An indictment filed this week in U.S. District Court in Georgia states that Pam Spivey of Lavonia threatened to kill Collins as well as an immediate family member of the congressman.

The indictment doesn't identify the family member, nor does it reveal a possible motive.

Spivey is charged with influencing a federal official by threat; and influencing a federal official by threatening an immediate family member.

The court documents don't list an attorney for Spivey.
