Man Arrested in Connection to Threat Made on California State Senator

Leland Yee, a gun control advocate, received a letter that outlined which weapons would be used to kill him


SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 15 (UPI) — California state Sen. Leland Yee, a gun-control advocate, said a death-threat email he received a month ago detailed the weapons that would be used to kill him.

Yee said he had received death threats before but nothing as chilling as the lengthly email, allegedly sent by Everett Basham, 45, of Santa Clara, who was arrested Tuesday on multiple charges.
