Ohio Man Accused of Threatening Boehner to Go on Trial

A former Cincinnati-area bartender who said he heard the devil's voice telling him that House Speaker John Boehner was evil is set to go on trial Monday in federal court on charges he threatened to kill the Republican lawmaker.
Michael Hoyt has pleaded not guilty to a charge of threatening to kill a government official. He is scheduled for a nonjury trial in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati. Authorities have said in court documents that he threatened to kill Boehner with a gun or by poisoning his drink.
