WICHITA (AP) — A magistrate judge in Wichita has determined there’s enough evidence for prosecutors to charge a Dodge City woman with threatening an Arizona federal prosecutor.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Bostwick ruled Wednesday that the government established probable cause is the case of 60-year-old Angela Ramos-Ocana. She is charged with felony obstruction of justice and misdemeanor illegal entry into the United States.

During a preliminary hearing last week, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brent Anderson presented transcripts of recorded phone conversations between Ramos-Ocana and her jailed nephew.

In the calls, Ramos-Ocana repeatedly asked Freddy Ovando-Ocana to get the name of the prosecutor handling his human smuggling case in Arizona to see “what we can do here, to shut her mouth up.”
