MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A plea hearing has been delayed for a Dane County woman accused of e-mailing death threats to 16 Wisconsin legislators. The attorney for Katherine Windels of Cross Plains said he couldn’t make Thursday afternoon’s scheduled court appearance in Madison due to a conflict. Another date for the proceeding has not been set. Windels, who turns 27 today, was scheduled to go on trial in January before an apparent plea deal had been reached. She’s currently charged with two felony bomb scare counts, and two misdemeanors of using computers to threaten bodily harm. Prosecutors said she wrote the GOP lawmakers in March, on the night the Senate passed the law which virtually ended most public union bargaining. Windels reportedly said she would shoot the lawmakers in the head -- and that bombs were planted around their homes and vehicles. Windels reportedly told investigators she was upset with what the Republicans did, but was not planning to carry out the threat.
