Tae Kwon Do instructor J. Everett Dutschke was arrested in April for the outlandish crime of sending ricin-tainted letters to public figures and then trying to frame his archenemy, an Elvis impersonator named Paul Kevin Curtis, with the poisoning attempts. The story immediately became freak-show fodder, complete with a long GQ article that went back to the origin of Dutschke and Curtis' rivalry. Today that story continues, as Dutschke has been charged with again attempting the same ridiculous crime, this time from behind bars.
The new indictment says Dutschke, while incarcerated, tried to recruit someone to make more ricin and send it to [U.S. Senator Roger] Wicker, R-Miss.
The indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford says Dutschke, 42, was again trying to frame Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis, the same man he's accused of trying to set up the first time.
This new indictment will add another count to Dutschke's original charges, which you can read about below. Dutschke's trial is slated for May 27.
