School of Mines student indicted for alleged threat

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota School of Mines and Technology student accused in April of leaving a threatening letter at the college has now been indicted on a terroristic threat charge.

Authorities allege that Boyce Way, 19, of Mitchell left a note on a school employee's desk saying there would be violence on campus and mentioning a shooting and the burning of a dean's house. Police say the note contained the letters BTK, the infamous signature of a Kansas serial killer.

Way is expected to enter a plea within the next 1 1/2 weeks. It was not immediately clear if he had obtained an attorney, and a telephone listing could not immediately be found for him in Mitchell or Rapid City, where the school is located.
