MADISON (WKOW) -- Authorities say 26-year-old Katherine Windels sent disturbing emails to 16 Republican senators, repeatedly threatening to kill them.
Windels, of Cross Plains, faces four charges including using a computer to send a threat and creating a bomb scare.
Two of the counts are felonies, two are misdemeanors. The criminal complaint says the emails were sent on March 9, the same day senate Republicans passed the revised budget repair bill with no Democrats present.
According to the complaint, Windels told the senators "you will be killed and your families [sic] will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks." She threatened to "put a nice little bullet in your head," and made reference to several bombs.
Investigators visited Windels at her home the next day. According to the complaint, she told them she had sent the emails, and did so because she was very angry about what the senators had done. She also said she didn't intend to carry out the threats, and was not arrested.
Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne filed the charges Thursday. He says "it's odd" law enforcement never took Windels into custody.
"The reality is, the person was not placed into custody, so at some point, law enforcement didn't see the person as an imminent threat," Ozanne said. "It's not that the case was not serious or taken seriously by law enforcement or by this office."
This morning, the Justice Department sent a letter to the media, saying it was concerned about the "lack of action" on the case by the D.A.'s office. The Justice Department had referred the case to Ozanne two weeks prior.
Ozanne says his office filed charges in an appropriate amount of time.
"The file was reviewed as quickly as possible," he said.
He declined to comment on whether the letter could be the result of mounting tensions between his office, and the Justice Department. The two are pitted against each other in the lawsuit against the Governor's budget repair bill.
Windels is not in custody. The D.A.'s office says she won't be arrested.
The district attorney's office said Friday morning, the 26-year-old will now make her initial appearance Thursday, April 21.
If convicted on all counts, she could face up to seven years, six months in prison.
So do you think they will take her into custody after she kills one of them?
Hey Katherine some of these officials carry heat and would not hesitate to exterminate a cockroach like you.
So you can now make very specific threats to kill lawmakers and their families and you don’t get arrested! Wow! Just Wow!
Watch for an “I’m sorry if anyone was offended” “apology”....
She is also a Wisconsin teacher. Not 100% confirmed but much points to that
If she had an R by her name, DHS would have her arrested, convicted of domestic terrorism and put in a Federal Prison in less than a week.

MADISON (WKOW) — The Dane County District Attorney has filed charges in connection with threats against state lawmakers.
Katherine Windels, of Cross Plains, 26, faces four counts including a computer message threat and bomb scare.
Two are felony and two are misdemeanor charges.
The threats, made against Republican state senators and possibly others according to authorities, led to tighter capitol security earlier this month, when thousands protested the passage of collective bargaining limits and demanded more access to the building.
SHE’S A TEACHER!
Katherine Windels of Cross Plains (26) teaches children in pre-school and kindergarten
Does the gov. have no ex. authority here? Surely he could order her arrest. This kind of bias causes all decent humans to seethe with volcanic rage, and yet, the gov. will do nothing for fear of looking mean or something. On all the entire face of the globe, does ANYTHING exist with less guts than a pol?
Early education teacher. Would anyone except a liberal want this POS anywhere near their kids?
And here I was, foolishly thinking that Justice was blind ...
If she were not a female teacher, wouldn’t she already be in jail?
It's also deaf and dumb.
GUILTY!!! Hang ‘em High
Must be that “two Americas” John Edwards was talking about...
