LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A Kentucky man has been charged with threatening to kill the state's governor, first lady and their family in a series of Facebook postings.

Federal agents believe 22-year-old William Collin Bordt of Lexington may have also posted threats to a former employer and a politician in South Carolina.

Kentucky State Police and federal agents arrested Bordt on Wednesday and charged him with using interstate communications to make threats.

Department of Homeland Security Special Agent Michael Romagnoli wrote in an affidavit that Bordt posted "Your both dead if he doesn't step down" and other messages on the governor's Facebook page.

Bordt's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Friday.
