WASHINGTON (AP) -

Federal prosecutors allege that an Ohio man threatened to murder House Speaker John Boehner last fall.

A grand jury indictment identifies the accused man as Michael R. Hoyt. Boehner's congressional district includes part of eastern Ohio.

A spokesman for Boehner, Michael Steel, says the speaker is aware of the situation and sincerely thanks the FBI, the Capitol Police and the local authorities in Ohio for their efforts.

The Capitol Police could not be reached for immediate comment.
