A California man was indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta on charges of threatening Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia announced Friday.

Mark Schultz, 66, of Chula Vista, made his first court appearance in California on Friday. He was indicted on April 24 and will be arraigned in Atlanta in June, according to the Department of Justice.

According to court documents, Schultz repeatedly posted comments on YouTube livestream videos in October that threatened Willis with violence, including one that said she, “will be killed like a dog.”

The indictment detailed more threats Schultz made, including, “FANI WILLIS WILL BE DEAD IN 2024,” and other threats using racial slurs.

Willis is leading one of the four major criminal cases against former President Donald Trump and has charged him with felony racketeering and conspiracy charges for working to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.
