CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) – A Chicago man is accused of threatening to bomb Southern Illinois University’s Carbondale campus and kill 4,000 students and staff.

A federal grand jury has indicted 23-year-old Maurice Wiggins on a felony charge of making a bomb threat. Officials allege Wiggins made the threat on the Internet Aug. 29, sending a message from his cell phone to the university’s crime-watch website.

Wiggins allegedly said he planned to bomb three dormitories and a student center.
