Man accused of sending threatening letters refuses rebuttal in trial

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A former Iowa letter carrier, accused of sending threatening letters and dud pipe bombs to investment advisers, refused to offer a rebuttal at the opening of his trial.

On Tuesday, prosecutors made their case against John Tomkins of Dubuque.

They say he gathered information about people he threatened and shared the information to intimidate them.

Prosecutors say Tomkins sent letters from 2005 to 2007 that threatened to kill those who received them.

Some of these letters were signed "Bishop".
