OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A man in Mississippi has been arrested and accused of sending letters with suspected ricin poison to President Barack Obama and other leaders.
    
FBI identifies the suspect as Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, of Corinth, Miss
    
Authorities still waited for definitive tests on the letters to Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., which had raised concern Wednesday at a time when many people were jittery after the Boston bombings.
    
An FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press said those two letters were postmarked Memphis, Tenn.
