MURRAY Ky. (WSIL) -- A Wisconsin man is due back in court next month after police say he called in fake threats.

A grand jury indicted 19-year old Kya Nelson, of Racine, Wisconsin, on multiple counts of terroristic threatening last Friday, according to the Calloway County Circuit Clerk's Office.

In January, multiple law enforcement agencies responded to calls about shots fired and a bomb threat to Murray High School in consecutive days. Investigators determined the calls to be false.

An arrest warrant from the Murray Police Department's stated Nelson was a suspect in multiple 'swatting' incidents in Los Angeles, California. The FBI provided documents to detectives that led to Nelson's location.

On January 29, multiple authorities arrested Nelson at his home in Racine. Nelson was extradited back to Kentucky two weeks later.
