TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Ricin has been found in a business once used by the man charged in the case of letters laced with the deadly poison being sent to President Barack Obama, according to a court document made public Tuesday that also said the substance was found on items the suspect dumped in a public trash bin.

James Everett Dutschke, 41, was arrested Saturday by FBI agents at his home in Tupelo, Miss., and is being held without bond pending a preliminary and detention hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Oxford.
