DAVIESS COUNTY, Mo. — The defense for a Utah man accused of making terrorist threats against officials in Daviess County was denied an extension for mental examination.

Brinton J. Bingham, 34, of Provo, Utah was charged in March, with one felony count of making a terrorist threat in the first degree.

A probable cause statement alleges that Bingham called the courthouse over a fine and threatened to shoot a Daviess County sheriff’s deputy.

After a warrant was issued for Bingham, he was arrested in Colorado, supposedly on his way to Daviess County.

The case had been suspended until Bingham is proven to be capable of understanding the charges.
